Read the Guides to Anti-Racism and Abolition
Accountability for Dearborn's Guide to Abolition and Guide to Anti-Racism are resources for everyone who is curious about anti-racism and carceral abolition, who needs help approaching these conversations, who isn't sure what kinds of policies to advocate for, or who is looking for additional resources to learn more.
This resource contains:
Introduction to abolition and anti-racism
Modeled dialogues, addressing common questions about abolition and anti-racism.
Guide to policy change.
Update: the Guide to Abolition contains an adaptation of Mariam Kaba's article "Police Reforms You Should Always Oppose". Since the publication of this article, and the compilation of the booklet, the recommendations of establishing civilian oversight and requiring cops to carry personal liability insurance have been revisited, and are no longer considered appropriate reforms.
