    Unbuild Walls: Why Immigrant Justice Needs Abolition

    Hot button words in Texas: “build,” “border,” “wall.” But don’t bother trying to discuss them with your neighbors or aunts on Facebook – learn from Silky Shah, an actual expert. Local Texan Shah has been working in immigration reform (along with racial and prison reform) for over 20 years. She’s distilled that knowledge into her new book, where her lived experience and decades of research argues toward humanizing immigration policies. It’s not just about unbuilding the physical border walls. It’s about unbuilding every wall upstanding unjust detention for vulnerable populations. Listen to her compelling work in-person through conversations with local activist Bob Libal.v– Cat McCarrey
