Audio Interference 77.1: Archiving Abolition – Survived & Punished

This episode of Audio Interference is about Survived and Punished, 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. We’re speaking with two members of the New York chapter of the group, Will Willis and Maureen Silverman.

A huge thank you to Ivie, Sassii, Maureen Silverman, and Will Willis for contributing to this episode. And a huge thank you to all other Survived and Punished volunteers.
