“Prisons Make us Safer” And Other Myths: Talking Abolition with Victoria Law

Long-time journalist and prison abolitionist author and organizer Victoria Law joins It’s Going Down to discuss their new book, Prisons Make Us Safer: And 20 Other Myths of Mass Incarceration. We discuss the myths used to justify mass incarceration brought up in Law’s new book, prisoner resistance in an age of COVID-19, how the struggles of women and trans prisoners are often overlooked and under-reported, and how the State has adapted and responded to the growing surge of abolitionist sentiment and activity.
