The quest to overturn structural racial and economic injustice in the United States is arguably most powerful in the growing movement to end the racialized system of mass incarceration. Leading the struggle to dismantle the US prison-industrial complex stands the Formerly Incarcerated and Convicted People’s Movement.
Could be very key to watch, an incarcerated peoples led by a coalition of incarcerated people strikes me as an ideal scenario for corrections reform advocates everywhere. Depending on the actions and visibility of this coalition it may play a critical role in shaping corrections reform. Note too that they are formed with reference to Mechelle Alexander’s the New Jim Crow, with a strong anti-oppressive message.
