Though disabled people are disproportionately affected by imprisonment and police violence, we are rarely centered in conversations about abolition of police and prisons. Attorney, writer, activist, consultant, sex worker, and artist Katie Tastrom’s presentation focuses on the intersection of abolition and disability justice and how the two frameworks complement each other to lead to concrete strategies toward abolition of all carceral systems, especially those that target disabled people.
Sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Disability Cultural Center, and the Center for Disability Resources.
