The mission of the Social Justice Symposium is to raise awareness of social justice issues and inspire people to act for social change through action-oriented workshops. Social Justice: a process, not an outcome, which (1) seeks fair (re)distribution of resources, opportunities, and responsibilities; (2) challenges the roots of oppression and injustice;(3) empowers all people to
exercise self-determination and realize their full potential;and (4) builds social solidarity and community capacity for collaborative action.

The Abolitionist, a newspaper publication dedicated to the strategy and practice of prison industrial complex abolition has transcribed a presentation I did on Dignidad Rebelde and our work supporting social movement organizations with creative visual interventions. I am honored these words will be shared with over 2,500 in people in jails, prisons and detention centers.
This time of year is when many of us are able to enjoy spending time with our loved ones it is important to remember about those who cannot. There are so many separated by walls of jails/prisons, borders and fences.
Our struggle to abolish these divisions continues.

Seeking help after being in a car accident, Renisha McBride,a 19-year-old young Black woman, knocked on the door of a home in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn Heights last Sunday. Instead of assisting her, the White homeowner Ted Wafe (54 years old) opened the door and shot McBride in the face with a single shotgun blast. She had knocked on several doors seeking help after the accident.
