Beyond Walls is an organizing initiative featuring documentary films that define and amplify what prison industrial complex (PIC) abolition means, while inspiring people to imagine and take action toward a world without policing. Beyond a goal of simply changing hearts and minds, these five short films, this website, and screening events offer concrete tools and actions that can be taken to help create a world without police and prisons. Beyond Walls was curated by the Center for Political Education, Critical Resistance, MPD150, and Survived + Punished in partnership with Working Films.
Triad Abolition Project is a grassroots organization committed to dismantling the carceral state, building communities committed to care and compassion, and dreaming of liberation together. We work in solidarity with and for incarcerated and criminalized folks, and those vulnerable to criminalization and state violence through direct action, civic engagement, political education, and healing and transformative justice initiatives. We organize to reduce and eliminate the harm and violence of the criminal punishment system, to imagine safety and care beyond the carceral state, and to support the efforts of sibling organizations doing critical work fighting against carcerality.
