Organizing & Collaborating Inside & Outside of Prison

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do we coordinate and communicate with imprisoned organizers who are far away, behind razor wire and walls? We will share how we have used media to support mass actions inside Pennsylvania prisons, held art and theatre workshops in jails, fought alongside imprisoned loved ones, and created coalitions involving the participation and leadership of people who can’t be physically present at events. Participants will learn how to use culture-based strategies to make media-based organizing accessible to those most marginalized.
