Together, Survived and Punished NY and Audio Interference, a podcast produced by Interference Archive, present Archiving Abolition. Join us on Wednesday September 30 @ 6:30pm for our listening party to celebrate the launch of Archiving Abolition, a podcast series collaboration from our two organizations as well as issue #4 of “Free:Survivors”, Survived & Punished NY’s inside-outside newsletter.

Throughout Archiving Abolition, you’ll hear interviews and spoken word from Survived & Punished comrades on the inside, their loved ones, and supporters advocating for their freedom and the abolition of the prison industrial complex. Come to Archiving Abolition to hear excerpts from the series and roundtable conversations about the importance of archival work, the conditions comrades face on the inside, current S&P campaigns, and how to get involved.

Hear from Survived & Punished NY’s Editorial Collective members about their process of creating “Free : Survivors,” as they read and share Issue 4 content, and learn more about the fight to free criminalized survivors! 

Listen to clips of Audio Interference’s newest series of podcast episodes, which includes an interview with Survived & Punished volunteers and a selection of stories from comrades inside. This podcast series will debut alongside Survived & Punished’s most recent abolitionist newsletter.

There will be Spanish and ASL interpretation during the event.

Our comrades at Survived & Punished (S&P) are accepting donations if you’re unable to attend but want to support their work:

Survived & Punished (S&P) is a coalition of defense campaigns and grassroots groups committed to eradicating the criminalization of survivors of domestic and sexual violence and the culture of violence that contributes to it. The all-volunteer organization includes community organizers, survivor advocates, legal experts, and policy advocates including currently and formerly incarcerated survivors.

Interference Archive explores the relationship between cultural production and social movements. This work manifests in an open stacks archival collection, publications, a study center, and public programs including exhibitions, workshops, talks, and screenings.

Audio Interference is a podcast produced by Interference Archive. The podcast is about social movements past and present. We explore the connections between art, design, activism, and politics. Launched in 2015, Audio Interference features interviews with people who were witnesses to some of the most important moments of the recent past, such as the 1999 WTO protests in Seattle, Indigenous struggles for land rights, abolition, labor organizing among adjunct professors, struggles over housing and gentrification, and more.
