In Episode 1 Against Doom TV: Abolition + Electoral Politics, airing on October 22, the artists tackle abolitionism and electoral politics as harm reduction. What does abolitionism mean? How can we use art, direct action, and policy making to create a world without prisons, punishment, and other forms of control? And how do we use abolitionist artmaking and direct action to bring people to the polls and help us imagine a world beyond the current electoral systems we live in?
Creators Amy Khoshbin and Macon Reed will be speaking with City Council candidate Whitney Hu and Abolitionist organizers Derecka Purnell, Sophia Gurulé, Mon Mohapatra, and Ngozi Alston. Macon and Amy will uncover answers with a live online audience through different segments on the show, including a dating show called Love Triangle.
