The power of the community. The fight for justice.

An Abolitionist's Handbook is for those who are looking to reimagine a world where communities are treated with dignity, care and respect

An Abolitionist's Handbook

Cullors charts a framework for how everyday activists can effectively fight for an abolitionist present and future. Filled with relatable pedagogy on the history of abolition, a reimagining of what reparations look like for Black lives and real-life anecdotes from Cullors, 'An Abolitionist's Handbook' offers a bold, innovative, and humanistic approach to how to be a modern-day abolitionist. Cullors asks us to lead with love, fierce compassion, and precision.
