Patrisse Cullors: An Abolitionist Journey image

WOW presents a very special evening with Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, author, educator, artist and abolitionist, to launch An Abolitionist’s Handbook, 12 Steps to Changing Yourself and the World.
Cullors discusses her groundbreaking book, imagining a world where communities are treated with dignity, care and respect.
She provides the tools to equip everyday activists to effectively fight for an abolitionist present and future, leading with love, fierce compassion and precision.
Join us to learn the history of abolition, reimagine what reparations might look like for Black lives and get the tools to envision change and healing.
An Abolitionist’s Handbook is published by OWN IT! a Black and Brown-owned and -run storytelling lifestyle brand, publishing, producing and representing powerful stories across books, music, art and film.
Patrisse Cullors has been on the frontlines of abolitionist organising for 20 years. Since she began the Black Lives Matter movement in 2013, it has expanded into a global foundation supporting Black-led movements in the US, UK and Canada and been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. Time Magazine named Cullors as one of the one hundred most influential people of 2020.
