      Youth Art & Self-empowerment Project – ABOLITION NOW! Workshop
      Thursday, August 1, 6:30-8pm

      Join us and Youth Art & Self-empowerment Project for a workshop that examines and challenges perceptions of safety, policing, and prisons. Participants will view and discuss artwork created by incarcerated youth and explore questions such as: How do prisons and police impact us? Do they make us safer? How do we create safety? Afterwards, participants will get a chance to briefly create and share artwork that envision the life-affirming institutions that could exist instead of prisons and police.
