Postcapitalism, Prison Abolition, and Transwomen


*TGIJP (transgender, gender-variant, intersex, justice project)*
“TGI Justice Project is a group of transgender people—inside and outside of prison—creating a united family in the struggle for survival and freedom.
We work in collaboration with others to forge a culture of resistance and resilience to strengthen us for the fight against imprisonment, police violence, racism, poverty, and societal pressures. We seek to create a world rooted in self determination, freedom of expression, and gender justice.”

*Emmi Bevensee*
Emmi Bevensee is a CIIS student, trans-advocate, writer, and speaker on breaking cycles of violence against transwomen.

They will be holding a panel discussion followed by a community engagement around the intersections of colonialism, capitalism, and globalization with sex, gender, race, and sexuality. To focus on these topics we will be taking a critical lens towards the conditions of Transwomen in the Prison-Industrial Complex (PIC).
