Resources for Abolishing Prisons and Jail from Episode 41 with Sonya Mendoza

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Bevin @ 8:01 pm

Released June 18th–podcast interview with Sonya Mendoza, longtime activist, who was willing to come on my podcast and talk about what it looks like to have a world without police and prisons. Here are resources she suggests for folks who want to learn more about this work.

The Juneteenth website for finding protests: https://sixnineteen.com/

Resources:
1. Podcast – Ruth Wilson Gilmore Makes the Case for Abolition https://theintercept.com/2020/06/10/ruth-wilson-gilmore-makes-the-case-for-abolition/

2. Read – hey look how convenient an entire PDF of “Are Prisons Obsolete” by Angela Davis https://www.feministes-radicales.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Angela-Davis-Are_Prisons_Obsolete.pdf

3. Watch/study  – This was done for Wilderness Torah, a synagogue in the Bay Area but it’s an incredibly great overview on what white supremacy is and how it functions in every day life with a lot of grounding in history so I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about systemic racism! https://www.facebook.com/wildernesstorah/videos/564074664291521

4. Another podcast, a throwback from a few years ago but I really can’t recommend this highly enough and I continue to push to people, is Seeing White, a 14 part podcast on the construction of whiteness that endlessly helped me formulate better anti racist arguments and has given many white people a better framework for why everything is happening right now is happening. https://www.sceneonradio.org/seeing-white/
