We’ve begun facilitating a series of sessions for our friends at Chicago Community Bond Fund this month, supporting the org as it evaluates next steps in the fight to #EndMoneyBail. Over the coming months we’ll be revisiting and revising CCBF’s mission and vision, reevaluating its core values and commitments, and reimagining some of its structures so that the org can continue its work sustainably without losing its radical roots.
On the 22nd, we’ll also return to our friends at Invisible 2 Invincible to teach a Pod Mapping & Transformative Justice workshop. This has become an annual tradition, and we’re always happy to come back to support the badass work of i2i!
We’re proud to be leading a brief Prison Abolition 101 workshop in Nashville, Tennessee on the 24th for Black Mama’s Bail Out’s first ever pre-convening. No one does praxis like National Bail Out, imagining a world without prisons while fighting in the present to free our people from incarceration. We are excited to join them for this convening, continuing to deepen our collective ability to envision a post-incarceration world.
Lastly, we’re excited to announce that this month we’ll be traveling to Mexico City! Museo Universitario del Chopo is the new home of the Elements of Vogue exhibit in which we originally participated at CA2M in Madrid back in 2017. We’ll be performing Dancer As Insurgent while at MUC, as well as teaching a Trans & Queer Resistance to Policing workshop in Spanish. (Shoutout again Rachel Hoffman who helped us both translate and print the timeline that will be joining us on this trip!)
