Have you heard the phrase 'abolish the police' being thrown around, but you're not really sure what this demand actually entails?
In this episode, we break down the ideas and intellectual histories of arguments to abolish, defund, and reform policing as an institution. We hope our discourse is helpful to you in figuring out where you stand in conversations around race and the criminal justice system. This is a companion piece to our previous episode, 'We Need to Talk: The Prison-Industrial Complex", and aims to give you an insight into the ways in which the criminal justice system can be reformed and detached from the racist structures that currently underpin it.
