Don’t forget to RSVP for our event this Saturday, November 8th from 7-9pm at LACAN, 838 E 6th St. Los Angeles, CA 90021.
“A World Without Walls: Community Conversations on Carceral California” comes out of a project between Californians United for a Responsible Budget and the American Studies Association to create dialogue between scholars and community activists on issues of race, gender, carceral state violence and more.
We have an exciting line-up of distinguished panelists including: Ruthie Wilson Gilmore of CUNY, Kelly Lytle-Hernandez of UCLA, Priscilla Ocen of Loyola Law School, Dylan Rodriguez of UC Riverside, Dennis Childs of UCSD and Damien Sojoyner of Scripps College. We’ll also be joined by community activists from Los Angeles Community Action Network (LA CAN), Youth Justice Coalition, and Dignity and Power Now. For more information, click here.
