Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
In this episode we focus on the joint struggle for migrant justice and prison abolition. We speak with Abraham Paulos, Executive Director of Families for Freedom: an abolitionist organization fighting deportations in New York City; and Aly Wayne, an undocumented organizer based in Syracuse, one of upstate New Yorks rustbelt cities. Together, we examine the tensions between demanding citizenship and fighting for freedom, as well as the need to hold Blackness and criminality within the migrant justice movement.

We close todays show with two firsthand narratives. One from Curtis, a local Detroiter whose family has been turned upside down by the carceral state and racial capitalism, and another from Harold Gonzales, currently incarcerated inside Michigans Kinross prison.
