Imagine Abolition Episode 3: The Abolitionist Pod

Episode 3 speaks to our lives as human beings—before we are workers, students, organizers, or activists.

Movement organizers spend so much of their life working on tearing oppressive systems down, but what does it mean to focus on visioning? On nurturing something to life? This summer, several Black artists, farmers, and visionaries got together to create the Abolitionist Pod—a hub containing hundreds of seeds, plants, and crops, enough to feed several hundred people for months. This is what abolition is: before it is about tearing systems down, abolition is about sustaining ourselves and each other to thrive.

“An abolitionist world would truly embody the kind of dignity, respect, and care and love we all deserve.”
