We teamed with the Marguerite Casey Foundation and Seattle Arts & Lectures to bring author Derecka Purnell and historian Dr. Robin D. G. Kelley to an online audience

"Becoming Abolitionists: Police, Protest, and the Pursuit of Freedom explores how the promise of police reform has failed us and offers new perspectives on prison abolition. Protests against police violence expose how current “solutions” are insufficient, and Purnell’s book shares the true power of multi-racial social movements to teach and guide us toward true safety, justice and liberation. Published by Astra House in late 2021, Becoming Abolitionists was a Noname Book Club pick in January 2022.”
