Although calls to abolish prisons and policing have reached new heights in the wake of the state sanctioned murder of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, prison abolition has existed as an intellectual and political movement for more than five decades. Drawing from his experiences organizing and advocating against carceral systems in Alabama and New Jersey, Daniel Teehan discussed the contemporary movement to transform our society’s response to harm and the incarcerated Black organizers leading it.
Bio: Daniel Teehan (he/him) is a writer, organizer, and prison abolitionist based in Brooklyn. He spent the last three years living in Montgomery, Alabama and working at the Southern Poverty Law Center, primarily on litigation challenging healthcare conditions in the Alabama Department of Corrections. He remains involved with the Free Alabama Movement, Decarcerate Louisiana, and the National Freedom Movement.
