Students for Prison Education and Reform (SPEAR) joins in solidarity with our incarcerated comrades striking across the country in the August 21 National Prison Strike. SPEAR seeks the dismantling of all structures that perpetuate racial and class oppression in the U.S. and globally, no more clearly apparent than in our system of prisons and policing. SPEAR wholeheartedly supports the demands of the National Prison Strike--which focus widely on prison conditions, voting rights, racial justice, and the ability of incarcerated people to organize and advocate for themselves--in recognition that the massive human suffering in cages must be alleviated even as we work together for the eventual dismantling of the carceral state.

Please read the demands and add your organization's name here. You can find a recent podcast about the upcoming strike here.
