The Aroma of Tacoma: Environmental Justice and Abolition Geographies
Abolition ecologies invite us to think about how to build freedom across relations of land and people. In
our present conjuncture, abolition ecologies rely on the work of
solidarities amongst communities, rural and urban, Indigenous and
settler, across peoples of color and white co-conspirators to come
together. This talk seeks to ground these concepts in radical
placemaking: the work to close the Northwest Detention Center (NWDC) and
halt construction on a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant on Indigenous
Puyallup land. Through abolitionist praxis, I show how communities of
color can reclaim their freedom dreams where they live, work and play. For additional information, please contact Natalie Koch at email@example.com.
