Last week, The Breach produced and streamed the 2022 Prisoners’ Justice Day broadcast, organized by the Abolition Coalition, and hosted by Desmond Cole and The Breach Show’s El Jones.
If you missed the event, or want to revisit some of the provocative insights, here’s a collection of highlights. It draws on PJD TV’s coverage of nationwide events, discussions with scholars and activists, and a rarely-heard live call with incarcerated people about the living conditions that are hidden from most Canadians.
The kind of journalism you appreciate
After working in Canadian media for nearly a decade, I’ve come to realize that “objectivity” is often a code word for passive, uncritical reporting.
I’m proud of our honest journalism. Instead of feigning objectivity, we’re open about our progressive values while maintaining rigorous standards.
If that sounds like the kind of journalism you appreciate, consider becoming a monthly sustainer. You'll help us deliver transformative journalism that’s accessible to everyone.
