Truth!

An informative and authentic discussion on abolition from people impacted by mass incarceration who are making changes to this oppressive system. Highly recommend!

Fantastic Podcast!

I’ve been eager to learn more about abolition and to hear from those most impacted, especially here in California. I love that the hosts have a diversity of experiences that they’re able to articulate to the listener in an engaging way. It’s vulnerable and raw but feels like hanging out with and listening to friends. The guests so far are fantastic abolitionists as well. Excited for more episodes!

Big gratitude for the voices of Taina, Ra, and Lee, who bring their fullest selves to this podcast- their vulnerability is inspiring and their leadership is visionary.
