Abolitionist Study Group: Hosted by Queers for Justice

The Newburgh LGBTQ+ Center’s Queers for Justice present the Abolitionist Study Group the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays of the month from 7pm-9pm.

We are in a moment in history where it feels possible to end police as an institution and challenge the criminal justice system in ways that make it possible to see another future for us all collectively.

We understand that the movement to end mass incarceration and the fight for liberation must include womxn AND queer-identified people so that we don’t replace a system of oppression with another that will keep power in the hands in hetero-patriarchy.

This group uses text from thought leaders such as Angela Davis, Mariame Kaba, Ejerix Dixon, Leah Lakshmi, and others to help us shape what community accountability will look like.
