so glad you could join us, Chazidy!
thank you for having me. excited to hear the conversation
Great to see you Damian!
I have to teach my class in the CBCF at 6. Great info thus far
I am so appreciative for the wisdom these Souls have shared thus far. Tim, is it possible to email me a summary of the topics along with some of the numbers shared in the presentations?
Thanks for coming Damian. See you soon.
Thank you all for your time! I greatly appreciate the discussion and all that the panelist have brought
It seems ironic to me that federal definitions of human subjects in research define incarcerated persons as a vulnerable population. It is extremely difficult to conduct research in prisons because of this status as vulnerable. While on the one hand it seems we are protecting incarcerated people from exploitation, on the other hand it seems that it functions to keep researchers out of prisons whose work may not reflect positively on the institutions. No need to discuss, just a reflection.
Excellent Points, Mr. Santiago!
Here’s the book by Prof. Harris that Prof. Miller just mentioned: https://alexes-harris.com/a-pound-of-flesh/
On legal fines & fees
Unfortunately I can't stay for the rest of the discussion, but this was incredibly insightful and I learned a lot! Thank you all so much for hosting!
Thanks for that observation, Jessica! I totally agree
And those protections around vulnerable populations come precisely because of unethical and violent exploitation of the very same people, by the same institutions who now decide what is or is not ethical
For the panelists - what specific mechanism of the carceral state would you guys focus on academically or legally in order to decrease rates of recidivism as Gabriel described It.

I think in addition to focusing on policies that may not appear to be directly related to criminal legal transformation/abolition, we also need to have real conversations about how we respond to violence and what happens when a person causes serious harm. Mass incarceration cannot be remedied without addressing violence, most people in prison are in fact in there for what's considered to be a 'violent or serious' crime, so only focusing on low-hanging fruit like drug policy reform will not do much.
Absolutely! The work of Common Justice is one of many great examples of addressing harm. See also www.transformharm.org
Another great example of transformative justice in WA, including WA prisons, is Collective Justice: https://www.facebook.com/collectivejusticenw/
Great campaign in NY along the lines Toussaint is talking about: Release Aging People in Prison https://rappcampaign.com/
Great project against Life Without Parole in PA, aka the other death penalty: http://lifelines-project.org/
