Event Info.

Prison Abolition - What is it? How can this happen? What does a world without prisons look like? How can we stay safe? Come to our talk to listen to experts and activists discuss prison abolition politics and answer your questions. 


At Goldsmiths Stuent Union we support prison abolition as we know from the lived experiences of Black people and survivors of sexual violence that the current structure does not work. We are in favour of abolishing the prison system as we know it and rebuilding a world of compassionate and holistic justice, addressing the core causes of social inequality that are the root of crime. 


We are honoured to have the following Black speakers sharing their expertise and experiences with us:


Dr. Aviah Sarah Day

Criminology Lecturer at Birkbeck College and Sisters Uncut activist @Aviah_Sarah_Day



Chelsea A. Jackson MA MSc MPP (she/her), Abolitionist & Political Scientist, CRADLE Community @mschelsea_j @cradlecommunity

Sara Bafo

Welfare and Liberation Officer at Goldsmiths Students Union

and to facilitate the event we have
