Mad World: Psychiatry, Abolition, and New Horizons

Sunday, June 28, 2020 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Online

Psychiatry and psych wards are tools of the police state. Join Elliott Fukui for a webinar about disability justice and abolition. In this current political moment, we need to raise awareness about the inner workings of the mental health system so that we do not replace one oppressive system with another.

This webinar will have simultaneous Spanish and ASL interpretation and live transcription.
