Description: 
Join us for a discussion of the interrelated roles plated by charity, so-called welfare, and incarceration in reproducing the lives of New York City's racialized working class. Presenters will focus on the histories of these institutions, the resistances they have inspired, and the horizon for class struggle in the present paradigm of neoliberal retrenchment.

Participants

(Facilitator) Jarrod Shanahan is a doctoral candidate in Environmental Psychology at the CUNY Graduate Center studying the social history of the New York City jail system. He is an organizer with CUNY Struggle.
