From the publisher

A vital community resource for those who dream of building a just, caring, prison-free society.

‘A starting point for anyone interested in learning more about abolition.’

Brick by Brick is devoted to dismantling and rebuilding … Cradle advocate a revolutionary, compassionate communalism: “We must commit to care by any and all means necessary.”’
The New Statesman

The fight for prison abolition is a struggle for collective liberation: a transformative vision of a safer world, in which communities live free from exploitation on a thriving planet.

Drawing connections across social justice movements with a shared abolitionist ethic, this revolutionary book illuminates how harmful ideas of criminality and punishment can manifest in many ways beyond the prison industrial complex. This work is a collaboration with friends, mentors and giants fighting for housing justice, food justice, climate justice, migrant justice, justice for survivors of violence, and more.

With this insightful and generous book, now in its second edition, Cradle Community invites us to explore what it will take to dismantle structures of oppression, and to imagine the future we can rebuild together—brick by brick.
