This research examines how digital technologies in decarceration and anti-prison-industrial complex (PIC) movements reimagine and formulate new sites of anti-racist praxis in the Global North. Through participatory action research in four settler-colonial states (U.S., Canada, New Zealand, and Australia), this study looks at how counter-narratives contesting the PIC in the digital sphere from indigenous, prison justice activists, and formerly incarcerated peoples’ epistemologies can be examined as everyday sites of resistance. By examining the channels through which they organize, locally and transnationally, this research discusses how anti-PIC resistance in the digital age can help subvert and rethink the separation between those inside prisons and those in the “free-world”.
