Reina Gossett + Dean Spade (Part 1): Prison Abolition + Prefiguring the World You Want to Live In

Part 1 in a series of four short online videos produced by BCRW featuring activists Reina Gossett and Dean Spade discussing prison abolition as a political framework, exploring why this is a top issue for those committed to supporting trans and gender-nonconforming people:

These videos look at how to build societies where the process of creating justice is as important as the end—communities where no one is exiled. The series was released as part of the online discussion “No One is Disposable: Everyday Practices of Prison Abolition,” held on February 7, 2014. Video by Reina Gossett, Dean Spade, and Hope Dector.
