This panel explores the different ways criminalization fractures communities and separates people from the place(s) they call home. Bringing together activists from New York City to Palestine "The Criminalization of Home" looks at how state violence enforces a system of racialized dispossession, whether through eviction, deportation, incarceration, or colonization and ethnic cleansing. We'll also learn how people are protecting their communities by fighting back against the increasingly militarized policing of their neighborhoods, supporting prisoners' rights, and advancing a vision of freedom and self-determination.
Speakers include: Sahar Francis of Addameer; Darializa Avila-Chevalier of Black Youth Project 100; Mujahid Farid of Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP); and the panel will be moderated by Bina Ahmad.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m., panel begins at 7:30 p.m.
Co-organized by Adalah-NY: Campaign for the Boycott of Israel, Addameer Prisoner Support & Human Rights Association, Black Youth Project-100 NYC chapter, and the Center for Constitutional Rights.
