The New Underground
Movement Building Opportunity to provide Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated populations services that seek Transformative Justice through Living Amends opportunities and Resources that support a Strategic Release framework.
The Movement was born out of the premise that the prisoner must be involved in their own liberation. If the prisoner is not involved in the transformation process of their oppressive reality, if they are not involved in the praxis of developing an inquiry of their own humanity
in order to first recognize their chains, then break free of them, then the prisoner is submerged deeper in the reality of their oppression by failing to be recognized for their role as ACTIVE participants in their freedom.
Submerged into the dynamics of incarceration and imprisonment the prisoner adopts the guidelines of the systems that exploit them; due to conforming to their environment out of fear of the consequences, but mostly due to the fact that they have not been involved in creating the guidelines to the transformation process leading to their freedom.
Therefore the prisoner must not only see and carry out their role in the transformation of their chains, but must be recognized as playing a pivotal role in the abolition of the prison industrial complex.
The prisoners must be their own example in their struggle for liberation. And any individual, group, or organization whose work involves abolition of any part or effect of the prison industrial complex cannot deal with the prisoner, in ideology or practice, as mere subjects waiting to be saved or spoken for, but must work in solidarity with prisoners, understanding that it is only in dealing with the day to day realities that prisoners face, articulated from the prisoner's praxis of experiences, that the true and sustaining solutions are to be found and sought for.
