PAPS MISSION STATEMENT
Azzurra Crispino - Co Founder - www.iheartpaps.org
*The prison-industrial complex, in all its forms, including; immigrant detention centers, city and county jails, as well as state and federal prisons, must be abolished. This is a social evil that must be eradicated. The prison-industrial complex does not keep the community safe; it profits the elite while ravaging our communities.
*We are committed to ending racism, classism, patriarchy, ableism, cis-gendered privilege and ALL other interrelated forms of oppression. We recognize the prison-industrial complex is a racist institution, trans prisoners are especially vulnerable, and that women currently have the highest increase in rate of incarceration.
*All prisoners, regardless of their innocence or guilt, are worthy of dignity and support.
*Creating a community of resistance, support, love and mutual aid across the razor wire is a revolutionary act.
*Transformative justice, restorative justice, non-violent conflict resolution, forgiveness and community rehabilitation can and will replace the prison-industrial complex.
*Supporting prison reforms likely to lead to the eventual complete abolition of the prison industrial complex, such as amnesty programs, abolition of solitary confinement past 15 days, decriminalization of non-violent crimes, etc., can and will lead to an eventual abolition of prisons.
*Supporting acts of resistance behind the razor wire, and letting the voices, needs actions and desires of prisoners be amplified.
*Building broad coalition and community for all who wish to support prisoners or eradicate prisons.
*Engaging in peaceful actions and demonstrations to achieve these goals here.
