Trans & queer approaches to prison abolition

15 June 2019


Venue: Library Room, Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, Holborn, London WC1R 4RL

Organiser: IWOC London

Incarcerated Workers Organising Committee (IWOC) is committed to supporting imprisoned people and ending prisons. We are part of the IWW union.

This panel will include members of London Incarcerated Workers Organising Committee, Community Action on Prison Expansion and Bent Bars. We will discuss prison abolition from a trans and queer perspective. This includes both how trans and queer people are particularly impacted by imprisonment and criminalisation, and what queer/trans movements can bring to prison abolitionism. The panel will be followed by a strategy workshop, where we can discuss organising against prison and for a queer future.
