Sin Barras

Abolition of Policing

Dear Friends,

Sin Barras will be hosting Critical Resistance of Oakland for a 2 hour workshop titled “Abolition of Policing.”

Recent years have laid bare the violence of the police — but what empowers the system of policing and how can communities create safety without it? This workshop will explain how policing is an integral part of the prison industrial complex, and how we organize towards its abolition.

When: Saturday, June 10th from 1-3 PM
Where: Santa Cruz Barrios Unidos 1817 Soquel Ave, Santa Cruz, CA 95060


Sin Barras Meetings Now Held at Subrosa!

Join us every Monday at 7:15 PM at SubRosa Community Space.
703 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz, CA 95060.

We will discuss ways that Sin Barras can support local and state-wide abolitionist campaigns and how we can further support loved ones inside and their families. We will also discuss what’s going right here in Santa Cruz County.

So please, bring your ideas and your desire to end the prison industrial complex!

Sin Barras is still alive!

Sin Barras is in the midst of a transition due to key organizers leaving Santa Cruz. We’re a smaller group now but we are still alive. We’re looking for organizers with passion and new ideas. We want to create strong and healthy communities that make correctional institutions obsolete. We’re also interested in growing our network here in Santa Cruz and beyond. We invite you to come to a meeting if you are interested in working with prison abolitionists. Please contact us,, for more information.
