LOCAL>> Derecka Purnell – Becoming Abolitionists

Human rights lawyer/writer/organizer talks about her book about public safety alternatives with feminist/activist

Millions of people continue to protest police violence because these “solutions” do not match the problem: the police cannot be reformed.

In conversation with V (formerly known as Eve Ensler)

In Becoming Abolitionists, Derecka Purnell draws from her experiences as a lawyer, writer, and organizer initially skeptical about police abolition.

Purnell argues that police can not be reformed and invites readers to envision new systems that work to address the root causes of violence.
