“The ongoing feminicides throughout Latin America are but one example reminding us that to stay home isn’t necessarily to stay safe… It is my hope that sharing my own experience with abuse might offer insight into the interdependency between mutual aid, transformative justice, and abolitionist feminism.”

We have been told over and over again that there are “good cops”. Everyday Black people in Durham are targeted by police. Nearly 80% of people held at the Durham County Jail are Black while Durham is only 40% Black. Is that the role of “good cops”? To fill our jails with Black people? Is the role of a “good cop” to disproportionately stop and search Black drivers in Durham? Is the role of a “good cop” to detain and deport family members? Is the role of a “good cop” to murder Black people in Durham without any consequences? Kenny Bailey, Levante Biggs, Frank Clark, these people are not disposable. None of us are disposable.
