Abolition, #DefundThePolice, and Richie Reseda’s Success Stories

Richie Reseda experienced the school to prison pipeline first-hand when he was sentenced to ten years in prison as a teenager. While incarcerated, Richie started Success Stories, a feminist group for prisoners which gained national attention. He’s a wonderful musician, a talented designer, and a leader in the fight for abolition of police and prisons. He has such an inspiring story and gives us so much hope for the future.

Featuring music from 88 and Indigo Mateo!
