In this episode, hosts Will Beaman & Maxximilian Seijo discuss the abolitionist political vision with guest Maite Salazar (@MaiteSalazar4MO), progressive congressional candidate for Missouri’s 5th Congressional District in Kansas City.
Linking the movements for prison abolition to the long & evolving fight against institutions of slavery, Will, Maxx & Maite reflect on the ongoing activist-led approaches to social justice through Maite’s particular experience in Kansas City organizing. They insist on the need for a total transformation of the political and economic frameworks upon which such genocidal institutions were founded.
