How are artists actively using their art to take part in the abolish police and prison movement?

Host Pendarvis Harshaw will interview featured Bay area artists Deanna Van Buren, Sam Vernon, Leslie ” Dime” Lopez and Art curator Ashara Ekundayo about the upcoming show and auction titled ” Imagine Freedom: Art Works for Abolition” . They will discuss the over twenty year movement led by Critical Resistance to dismantle the systems of prisons, policing and surveillance , which heavily targets Black life and other people of color in the United states. And how art plays a role in the catalyst for change.
