As neoliberalism spreads, governments continue to divest from social welfare. At the same time, imprisonment, policing and other forms of social control have proliferated at a greater pace as strategies to manage the poor and marginalized. This mass incarceration and surveillance – distributed unevenly and shaped by class, race, gender, sexuality, and other markers of difference – has disastrous impact on our communities.

Fortunately, various groups are fighting these injustices. In this election year and as part of an ongoing struggle, we will collectively discuss some visions for change.

- Community Advisory Board of the Ottawa Carleton Detention Centre
