Conceptual Note:

Events @Turnsol Books:

From the roots of language and the heart of humanity, the word “Justice” blossoms, entwined with the essence of equity and equality. In its truest form, justice is the sacred act of restoring balance to the scales of life, tipping gently towards fairness where there is imbalance. As abolitionists, we envision a world where justice is not a weapon of punishment, but a tender hand that nurtures and heals our communities. When a pauper steals a loaf of bread, true justice does not confine him to a cell but sows the seeds of plenty so that hunger is but a distant memory.

In our misguided pursuit of retribution, we imprison the brightest lights of our generation. These souls, forged into flints by the weight of oppression, hold the potential to ignite transformative change. Yet, what does it say of our society when gentle genius and profound insight are shackled, hidden from the world behind bars? When brilliance is caged, how do we set their voices free to soar beyond the steel and concrete that binds them?

How do we call our incarcerated brothers and sisters back from exile? If their bodies remain confined, let us find ways to amplify their whispers of wisdom, their songs of hope, their calls for justice. Let us break the chains of silence and build a bridge from carcerality to community, restoring them to their rightful place among us. Through art and action, may we reimagine justice not as a distant dream but as a living, breathing practice of care, compassion, and balance.
