Abolition examines the interconnected power dynamics across prisons, police, immigration, gendered and sexual violence, environmental justice, disability justice, and more, in order to propose an abolitionist democratic present and future.

Professors Toby Beauchamp (Gender and Women’s Studies) and Naomi Paik (Asian American Studies) have been appointed CAS Resident Associates for AY2019-20 in charge of this initiative which includes a public events series and a seminar in Spring 2020 among other activities.
