“We are creating alternative futures. We know that abolition contains both destruction and creation, and we encourage the radical imagination of young people, to imagine a future beyond the foster care system.”
This video contains an overview of BBS’ work in 2013-2014, including our first youth cohort, various workshops, our Mother’s Day event and fundraiser, and the co-hosted panel on Breastfeeding and Incarceration aired on CAN-TV. Narrated by Director Charity Tolliver, the video overviews the recent projects and the mission of BBS.
“We are fighting for the abolition of the foster care system, and a lot of people find that to be dangerous talk. But abolition has always been dangerous talk. It is dangerous in that it challenges and transforms the systems that sustain themselves off of our oppression.”
