Starving the Beast: Practical Abolition in Atlanta

By Che Johnson-Long

For Oscar Cain

Che Johnson-Long is the Director of Decarceration Strategies at the Racial Justice Action Center, co-coordinating the campaign to close and re-purpose the Atlanta City Detention Center. She also serves as the Community Safety Program Coordinator at Vision Change Win, co-designing safety and security trainings for movement organizations. When Che is not organizing she spends her time studying “law” as a third-year Juris Doctorate candidate at Georgia State College of Law. Endless gratitude to Marilynn Winn, Xochitl Bervera, Tiffany Roberts, and Moki Macias for your edits and the entire Communities over Cages Alliance for your tenacity. When we fight, we win.
