Fight Toxic Prisons Conference Reportback
June 29, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
“Bloc the Juvi organizers will be reporting back from this year’s Fight Toxic Prisons Convergence which was held June 8th-11 2018 in Pittsburgh. We will discuss what we learned about the toxic prison system, drawing connections between struggles, and highlighting local and national opportunities for prisoner support and direct action.
The Campaign to Fight Toxic Prisons (FTP) is a collaboration with the Abolitionist Law Center. FTP’s mission is to conduct grassroots organizing, advocacy and direct action to challenge the prison system which is putting prisoners at risk of dangerous environmental conditions, as well as impacting surrounding communities and ecosystems by their construction and operation.” -Bloc the Juvie Organizers
