Organizing Against Mass Incarceration

Edward Carson, CPUSA Boston

All too often people are taught to see racism as individual acts and not as
components of institutional racism or a system of dominance—the enslavement of
Black and Brown people under the guise of capitalism, which has propagated
the current predicament of mass-incarceration. With a system designed to target
marginalized groups, imprisonment without rehabilitation does more harm
than good. Private and government prisons profit from prisoners—hence the
more people incarcerated means more profit. Mandatory minimums and three
strike policies make for strict sentencing and contribute to the increase
in prison populations nationwide. This engaging session explores current
scholarship, while inviting the audience into a discussion of resistance
and action, not talk. Join us for this thought provoking meeting.
