MILK NOT JAILS will be hosting an Ice Cream Social with presentations by Sabrina Jones & Kevin Pyle, illustrators of the Real Cost of Prisons Comix. Learn about what milk and jails have to do with one another. Enjoy ice cream and entertainment. Find out what you can do. The Real Cost of Prisons Comix provides a crash course in what drives mass incarceration, the human and community costs, and how to stop the numbers from going even higher.
Over 125,000 copies of the comic books have been printed and more than 100,000 have been sent to families of people who are incarcerated, people who are incarcerated, and to organizers and activists throughout the country.
This ice cream social spectacular is part of GRAPHIC RADICALS: 30 Years of World War 3 Illustrated, an exhibit at Exit Art. Graphic Radicals is a 30th anniversary retrospective of World War 3 Illustrated, an independently published political comic magazine founded in 1980 by artists Seth Tobocman and Peter Kuper.
MILK NOT JAILS is a consumer campaign to mobilize NY residents to support the dairy industry and the long-term sustainability of the rural economy. It is a political campaign to advocate for criminal justice and agricultural policy reform that will bring about positive economic growth. MILK NOT JAILS insists that bad criminal justice policy should not be the primary economic development plan for rural New York.
