Justice in America Episode 20: Mariame Kaba and Prison Abolition (2019) (https://theappeal.org/justice-in-america-episode-20-mariame-kaba-and-prison-abolition/)

Description: “On the last episode of Season 2, Josie and Clint discuss prison abolition with Mariame Kaba, one of the leading organizers in the fight against America’s criminal legal system and a contributing editor for The Appeal. Mariame discusses her own journey into this work, provides perspective on the leaders in this space, and helps us reimagine what the future of this system could look like. Mariame’s way of thinking about this system, and the vision of possibilities she provides, is an excellent send-off to our second season.”
