Beyond "Abolish ICE": Abolition in the Immigration Context 

What does it mean to "Abolish ICE?" How did we arrive at this moment, and where do we go from here? Join New Sanctuary Academy, a monthly popular education series featuring immigration scholars and activists. Through the series, we hope to deepen our understanding how Abolish ICE intersects with broader abolition movements, and to explore the path toward abolishing ICE in practical, tangible ways.
