We would love to see this type of work develop and expand within the public health field. As advocates for abolition with roots in anti-violence and harm reduction spaces in the US, we know that our own analysis, and this guide, have their own limits.

Thank you again. We believe that abolitionist futures will bring us the health and care that public health practitioners work towards everyday.
