If you've been around Columbus in radical circles for the past year or so, you've likely heard about Redbird. These folks work diligently to keep folks aware of the growing number of people in prison. They write letters, run errands, research, transcribe, fundraise, and support prisoners in all kinds of other ways. They also put on events to help educate the rest of us about what's really going on.
Prisons are nasty. Yet, the Prison Industrial Complex is stronger today than its ever been. It's going to take all of us working together in order to win this fight.

Focusing on the prison abolitionist movement, we interview two co-editors of an exciting new series at Daily Kos, called Criminal InJustice Kos, a weekly series "devoted to exploring the myths of 'crime', 'criminals', and criminal justice and the intersection of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, age and disability in policing and punishment. Criminal Injustice Kos is committed to furthering action towards reducing inequity in the US criminal justice system." Look for Criminal InJustice Kos every Wednesday at 6 pm CST.
