Liberate the Caged Voices presents:
Virtual Roundtable Dialogues
Gather in UBUNTU for our first monthly Roundtable Dialogues!
-- via Zoom this Saturday May 23rd, 2020 at 11 AM (invite information below).
Following the spirit of the Prisoner Human Rights Movement BLUEPRINT, we will enter into dialogue, mutual empowerment, and reciprocal education to learn the truth of WHO California’s caged elders are, WHY they’re aging in prison and WHAT we can do together to facilitate and win their freedom, and freedom for all.
This is a non-traditional interactive learning experience with an intention to build organically a kind of “curriculum” based on the multi-layered issue of indeterminant sentencing, which is civil death, and the torture of decades of solitary confinement that will emerge and unfold through our dialogues. In this liberated space, questions, answers and musings will develop and be acted upon, and we will offer “activities” to engage in between gatherings. There is a treasure trove of wisdom and story regarding what has been truly taking place within California’s prisons from the people and their families experiencing the effects of decades of unconstitutional incarceration, and the solutions being realized to make real change. They will guide our journey together as we expand our hearts and minds building people power and actions for humanity and freedom.
Hope to see you there!
