This article argues that prison abolition and education must be thought and practiced together, now more than ever. Drawing on a forum, "Without Walls: Abolition & Rethinking Education" in Oakland, CA to dialogue about strategies to challenge carceral logics in classrooms and communities, this article contextualizes the intensification of policing and the criminalization of young people and communities that continues to reach into and beyond all levels of K-12 schools. We share a number of suggestions and starting places based on the ways many educators and youth advocates are building the capacity to challenge the prison industrial complex.
