Since the 2020 George Floyd uprisings, police and prison abolition have become topics of household discussion throughout the U.S. But many people continue to doubt that abolition is realistic — or that abolition can be accomplished without sacrificing the safety of our communities. But in truth, across the country, people are practicing abolition everyday in their communities. This series, a collaboration between Truthout and Inquest, elevates their work by focusing on individual instances of abolition in action, providing examples of how people can — without waiting for state-level change — make abolition a reality in their lives.
