Abstract:

Current en former prisoners, activists and academics describe how race, gender, ability and sexuality are lived in captivity. They argue that trans/queer liberation and prison abolition must be grown together.

From her prison cell, Chelsea E. Manning writes about the relationship between military and the prison system. Janetta Johnson and Toshio Meronek argue that supporting people after they are released is vital to abolition. Kalaniopua Young explores the histories of colonialism, forced gender normativity and prison.
