She is the past President of the American Studies Association; a co-founder of Critical Resistance, a national organization working to end the prison industrial complex, and a co-founder of the California Prison Moratorium Project. Gilmore’s visionary leadership has been instrumental in advancing the campaign to shrink the prison industrial complex and to build genuine pathways to freedom and justice.”
