Abolition and the Failures of the Criminal Justice System
The injustice of the carceral state remains high with violent police arrests, unfair criminal courts, and a dehumanizing prison system. Abolitionists are playing the long game, however, and in spite of lowered media coverage, the demands made during the 2020 racial justice uprisings remain alive.
Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
