The Uprooting Carceral Psychology: Healing Justice Conference will be held online on September 25 and 26, 2021. This conference will focus on the intersections of psychology, mental health, and abolitionist and decolonial organizing.

Proposals can incorporate issues pertaining to (but not limited to) diagnosis, treatment, assessment, research, advocacy, prevention, and education of incarceration and abolition (e.g., School to prison pipeline, police violence and mental health, institutional violence against minoritized genders and sexualities, globalization and incarceration). Proposals related to healing and recovery, transformative justice, and community programs working towards abolition are highly welcomed. We encourage proposals that are action-oriented in order to learn about existing campaigns and promote ways to support.

International perspectives, submissions by BIPOC presenters, and by presenters who are systems-impacted will be favored. You do not have to be a psychologist or a mental health professional to participate! Presenters will get free tickets to the conference.

Please submit proposals HERE

Proposals are due by July 15, 2021.
Notifications will be sent by July 31, 2021.
