A4Abolitionist is an education consultancy committed to abolishing all forms of modern-day slavery, including human trafficking, punitive incarceration, and immigrant detention.
By centering those most vulnerable to forms of captivity—Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) women and girls—we advance strategies for deconstructing the prison industrial complex, divesting from human captivity, and investing in impacted communities. We use storytelling tools like virtual simulation, storyboarding, and systems mapping to deliver educational and program design services to anyone who wants to advance abolition.
