WCC - 1023 Classroom

This event aims to shed light on the urgent and crucial movement for prison abolition, with a specific focus on the experience of queer people behind bars and in the carceral system. The lunch-hour session will provide a platform to discuss the intricacies of legal and political work being done to support queer folk currently in prison as well as the broader work to confront the ways in which queer people are criminalized and punished. We aim to foster a deeper understanding of the call for an end to carceral violence and its specific impact on the queer community. In addition to prerecorded statements from an organizer currently incarcerated at MCI Norfolk, the event will feature the following panelists: D Dangaran (Director of gender justice at Rights Behind Bars), Dee Farmer (Legal expert and consultant, founder of Fight4Justice, former pro se plaintiff in the landmark Farmer v. Brennan), and Whitney Kelting (Associate Professor of religious studies at Northeastern University).
