OUR HISTORY. OUR IMPACT.

Through advancing a critical understanding of prison industrial complex and abolition, CR has consistently inspired individuals, organizations and communities to take creative and practical steps to build this liberated future. We have achieved many victories from successfully stopping the construction of new jails in New York to Los Angeles to ending the use of racist gang injunctions in Oakland and stopping California's 20-year prison building boom. Our campaigns, vision and strategies have been shared and used blue-prints across the US and internationally.

Organizer

Critical Resistance

Critical Resistance (CR) is a grassroots organization building a movement to end the reliance on the interlocking systems of imprisonment, surveillance, and policing—what we call the prison industrial complex (PIC)—as a response to political, social, and economic problems.  Our approach combines organizing and advocacy to dismantle current structures of imprisonment and policing, changing how communities and decision-makers understand punishment and safety, and building new institutions and practices to transform and prevent interpersonal, communal, and social harm.

Critical Resistance has a chapter in New York City. Read more about our work in NYC here: http://criticalresistance.org/chapters/cr-new-york-city/our-work/
