All We Have is Each Other: Hope and care in the face of violence and disaster
Thursday, October 20, 2022
1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. PT
Please join us in conversation with Mariame Kaba.
In the spirit of Kaba’s forthcoming book, Let This Radicalize You, we’ll talk about “some of the political lessons of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the convergence of mass protest and mass formations of mutual aid, and consider what this confluence of power can teach us about a future that will require mass acts of care, rescue and defense, in the face of both state violence and environmental disaster.”
Kaba is an organizer, educator, curator and prison industrial complex (PIC) abolitionist who is active in movements for racial, gender and transformative justice. Kaba is the founder and director of Project NIA, a grassroots abolitionist organization with a vision to end youth incarceration. Kaba is currently a researcher at Interrupting Criminalization, a project she co-founded with Andrea Ritchie in 2018.
Kaba has co-founded multiple other organizations and projects over the years including We Charge Genocide, the Chicago Freedom School, the Chicago Taskforce on Violence against Girls and Young Women, Love & Protect, the Just Practice Collaborative and Survived & Punished.
