“OCTAVIA’S Brood: Science Fiction Stories From Social Justice Movements is a collection of 20 fantastical short stories and two essays written by organizers, activists, and changemakers. Rooted in the premise that “all organizing is science fiction,” Octavia’s Brood also believes that our movements for justice vitally need spaces where we start with the question “What is the world we want to live in?” rather than starting with the question, “What is a realistic win?” Nowhere is this more relevant and needed than when talking about prisons and alternatives to incarceration. This roundtable brings the two co-editors and three of the Octavia’s Brood writers together to talk about their experience with prison abolition, science fiction, and transformative justice.”
