TILL ALL ARE FREE: A Hip/Trip-Hop benefit for the Prison Activist Resource Center (PARC) featuring *Prophets of Rage *Black Dot Artist Collective *DJ So Much Soul *EK Trip *Renaissance and more..... PARC is a prison abolitionist organization founded in 1994 to counter the escalating prison crisis in the united states. PARC provided practical support to prisoners and their families, activists, students, and educators building a movement to resist the prison-industrial complex. This work includes disseminating information that exposes the rampant human rights abuses of the criminal injustice and prison systems and building networks for direct action. We believe that progressive social change, not mass incarceration, is the solution to crime. We further believe that direct action is the only effective antidote to the many forms of institutionalized violence-both inside and outside united statesian prisons. Our goal is to help build a mass movement to create a society where prisons would not be needed and could not be justified.
