Two years ago, prison abolitionists succeeded in convincing the government of the city of New York to agree to close the torturous jail on Rikers Island. The solution? A kinder, friendlier, "neighborhood" jail in each borough! With a decisive city council vote coming up, prison abolitionist Nadja Guyot from No New Jails joins us to talk about the fight against these absurd "Justice Hubs," decarceration, and practical abolitionism.
