RIP Rebecca Hensley

The world of abolition and liberation work recently lost a giant, a mentor of mentors, and a dear friend, Rebecca Hensley. Thank you to Calvin ‘Casino’ Coleman for this beautiful remembrance of the woman who reminds us that we are “powerful participants” in these trying times.

We’ll continue to follow in her footsteps and fight in her memory. Solidary with all who mourn her loss.
