Join the Public Health Students of African Descent for the 34th annual Minority Health Equity Conference. While the prison abolition movement is not new, police violence during the summer of 2020 and the treatment of incarcerated people throughout the COVID-19 pandemic have brought abolitionist demands to the forefront of political thought and popular culture. This conference is offered by the Public Health Students of African Descent (PHSAD) at the University of Michigan School of Public Health with support from the Region V Public Health Training Center and the Office for Student Engagement and Practice. The theme for this year’s conference is Disrupt to Reconstruct: Mass Incarceration to Prison Abolition. Attendees will learn why prison abolition is necessary for achieving health equity, how incarceration exacerbates disability, and how to bring abolitionist practice to your public health work.
