FTP: F*ck The Person who put me in this dress

Connecting across the physical, mental, and societal barriers of being imprisoned, comic book art lifts the voices of incarcerated people. Many are wrongly convicted, have suffered abuse, and have grown beyond the moments that landed them in prison. Reflecting on our own complexity as humans, Casper takes a prison abolitionist mindset to confront cancel culture.
