With no signs of the prison industrial complex abating in the US how can we tread the path towards abolishing not just the death penalty, but the carceral system altogether?

How can we imagine a country and a world that is committed to building healthy, safe, and stable communities that thrive, instead of systems that default to punishment and vengeance?

This panel will feature firsthand perspectives and an inside look on what it means to abolish the carceral state from those directly impacted by this system.
