Movement for Mass Liberation and Deep Democracy
In the upcoming year we hope to deepen the just transition narrative and concepts to be inherently inclusive of formerly incarcerated people and continue to expand alternatives to the extractive economy. This work includes solutions which challenge the extraction of labor power, political rights, and human dignity through the systems of mass incarceration. The organization also plans to promote the leadership development and voter engagement of those most impacted by extractive systems.
