Reviews

"Ruthie has always been very clear that prison abolition is not just about closing prisons. It's a theory of change."--Michelle Alexander, author, The New Jim Crow

"In three decades of advocating for prison abolition, the activist and scholar has helped transform how people think about criminal justice."--New York Times Magazine
