Sparer Symposium 2021
Friday, February 5, 2021
Time: 8:45 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. EST
This year’s conference will explore abolitionism as a framework and value system that, when practiced broadly, can not only dismantle the carceral state but also change how we conceptualize and experience freedom in all segments of society. We will investigate how systems maintain racial dominance and control and then reimagine societies that are free of state surveillance and punitive norms by providing practical ways to utilize abolitionist thinking. This symposium will take the form of moderated panels on abolitionism and activism as they relate to housing, the child welfare system, immigration, and prisons.
