Colin Kaepernick is calling for abolishing the police and prison institutions as part of a new series of essays.
The series titled “Abolition for the People: The Movement for a Future Without Policing & Prisons” is a partnership between Kaepernick Publishing and the Medium publication Level that builds on a rich tradition of Black organizing and freedom-fighting, according to the website.
“Over the next four weeks, we will publish 30 essays from political prisoners, grassroots organizers, movement leaders, scholars, and family members of those affected by anti-Black state violence and terrorism,” Kaepernick wrote in the debut essay titled “The Demand for Abolition” that was published on Tuesday.
The essays will focus on several themes, including police and policing, prisons and carcerality, and abolition of police instead of reform.
