Visions of Abolition is a new feature length documentary about the prison industrial complex and the prison abolition movement.

We will be screening the movie’s 2 parts on 2 different nights – Sunday February 19th at 7pm and Sunday February 26th at 7pm. Both parts of the film are less than an hour long, leaving time for group discussion afterwards.

We encourage people curious about the prison industrial system, political prisoners, women and prisons, race and prisons, what alternatives there are to prisons and more to come watch and then join in the discussion.

We will also have handouts and literature from the Richmond Anarchist Black Cross at these screenings.

The Wingnut is a sober, all ages space located at 2005 Barton Avenue. Please call 804 303 5449 or email for more information.

The Richmond Anarchist Black Cross will be having an interest meeting and presentation at 1pm on  Saturday June 25th at the Really Really Free Market in Monroe Park at the corner of Main and Laurel. Generally speaking the Anarchist Black Cross is a prison abolition and political prisoner support group. To find out more about what we mean when we say that, come to this meeting/presentation!

For anyone who wants to find out about what the Anarchist Black Cross is about, this will be a good introduction to the concepts and background of the organization. We will be presenting on the history of the Anarchist Black Cross, other existing Anarchist Black Cross groups, and some information about the prison system in Virginia and our stance on the Richmond City Jail.

This will be an opportunity for discussion about these ideas- so if you’ve ever been curious or interested but too nervous to come to a meeting, this is your chance! If you like the presentation and want to bring it to a different venue we would be excited about that as well.
