Free Workshop TODAY: Gender and the Prison-Industrial Complex

Illustrating Intersections:

Gender and the Prison-Industrial Complex

A workshop featuring the Beehive Collective


Sunday, March 27

1-4 pm

Chicago Freedom School

719 S. State Ste. 3N


Please join the Chicago Freedom School, the Chicago Prison-Industrial Complex Teaching Collective and Maine’s Beehive Collective for an interactive Communiversity event about the intersections between prisons, policing, and gender. We’ll use illustrations, posters, and photographs to deepen our analysis of how the PIC targets queer and trans people in specific ways, and to discuss the impacts of imprisonment on women, trans people, and gender non-conforming people who get caught up in this system of violence.

The Beehive Collective will also give a brief tour of their incredible poster about mountaintop removal mining in the Appalachians, and we will learn ways to use illustrations to teach and learn about social justice issues.


This event is FREE and ALL AGES

Please RSVP to lewispants@gmail.com
