COMMUNITY CARE RESOURCES
The Harriet Tubman Collective
The Harriet Tubman Collective is Collective of Black Deaf & Black Disabled organizers, community builders, activists, dreamers, lovers striving for radical inclusion and collective liberation. It has a number of statements on police violence against people with disabilities, including the statement on "Completing the Vision for Black Lives."
The vision of Community Alternatives to 911 is a city and region where local communities have the resources and strong, interpersonal relationships needed to respond constructively and healthfully to problems together. We know that we cannot depend on the broken criminal justice system to solve our problems and that calling 911 often just makes the situation worse — if they respond at all. CAT 911 is about building transformative justice that lets us take control of our lives and our communities into our own hands and nurtures each other’s growth and human possibility.
Abolition and Disability Justice Collective
Abolition is not limited to ending spaces and practices of incarceration and policing. Fundamentally, abolition is also about reimagining new ways of life such that a world in which prisons, policing and other carceral systems as solutions to social problems becomes unthinkable. Abolitionism is also not just about creating new responses to crises but creating a new world in which we thrive such that less crises happen in the first place.
The call “we keep us safe” reminds us that solutions should empower all people, including Disabled and Neurodivergent people, to exercise our self-determination with care and understanding. We all deserve the resources, support, training and education we need to love and protect ourselves and one another.

Disability Incarcerated gathers thirteen contributions from an impressive array of fields. Taken together, these essays assert that a complex understanding of disability is crucial to an understanding of incarceration, and that we must expand what has come to be called 'incarceration.' The chapters in this book examine a host of sites, such as prisons, institutions for people with developmental disabilities, psychiatric hospitals, treatment centers, special education, detention centers, and group homes; explore why various sites should be understood as incarceration; and discuss the causes and effects of these sites historically and currently.
Liat Ben-Moshe provides case studies that show how prison abolition is not an unattainable goal but rather a reality, and how it plays out in different arenas of incarceration—antipsychiatry, the field of intellectual disabilities, and the fight against the prison-industrial complex.
