KNOW YOUR FIGHTS! Using Public Records Laws in Abolitionist Organizing

Read our latest zine! Abolitionists reject police “transparency” reforms, which we know can legitimize and expand the police state.

This zine explores that question, sharing how public records laws can be weaponized to build power and foster collective study.
