‘Intercoms’ is a work-in-progress series, aiming to launch live in the near future. These ‘Pre-Intercoms’ installments are pre-recorded interviews around 13th amendment-sanctioned prison slavery, its ramifications & organizing efforts against it.
In part two of this ongoing discussion with Shannon Jones (Bronxites for NYPD Accountability/’Why Accountability’, Stop the Raids Coalition) and Amrit Trewn (Black Youth Project-100, Stop the Raids Coalition), we continue to reflect on the Aug. 21 prison strike noise demonstration, race, organization, Abolitionism & ‘Sankofa strategy’.

‘…not just to build up political consciousness and to build out a political program for ending ‘permanent exclusion’ but to also to skillshare with each other around strategies we have for not callin the police. Strategies we have for attending to and resolving conflict without the ready-made tool of ‘9-1-1’. -Amrit
