Julie Schneyer is a prison abolitionist who started doing activism around prisons and policing almost a decade ago in NYC. She now lives in western North Carolina where she works with a books-to-prisons program that sends free reading material to people locked up in the Carolinas. Julie enjoys various things that she’d have a lot more time to do if prison were abolished.
