Thursday, October 9
**NOTE LOCATION** at CUNY Graduate Center, 365 5th Ave., NYC

Part of Self-Determination Inside/ Out, Interference Archive and the CUNYGC Center for the Study of Women and Society present “Prison is a form of violence against women.”, a video program and discussion about the motivations for and processes of organizing against prisons as gender violence. With Victoria Law, Cecily McMillan, Amy Meacham, and Sharon Richardson.
N.b. The organizers of Self-Determination Inside/Out took care to refer to people in prison as people, foremost. We were greatly influenced by the work of Tina Reynolds and Eddie Ellis on this front. Learn more:
