Working towards Abolition instead of Reform
This is a GREAT article that I found off of the PIC website. It pin points different rhetorics many prison reform groups use to change policy and reduce suffering for the incarcerated. It also clearly demonstrates how many conservative/ far Right political groups use these same rhetorics to twist these reform efforts into more prisons, more business, more control and more power. This article gives tactics and responses to use instead of the common ones in order to work toward the ultimate goal of eliminating the power of this system and working towards building alternatives to it.
