Stop Police Violence book talk

Police and prison abolition may be radical ideas to some, but they are gaining mainstream acceptance. Soon-to-be state Rep. Summer Lee (D-Swissvale) won an election while campaigning for prison abolition. And BOOM Concepts is playing host to an event for those looking to join the movement. Authors Alex Vitale and David Correia will be in Pittsburgh to discuss the topic and their books: The End of Policing (Vitale) and Police: A Field Guide (Correia). The Stop Police Violence book talk is co-hosted by The Big Idea Bookstore and Steel City Autonomous Movement (SCAM). The upcoming nationwide prison strike will also be a topic of discussion.
