Freedom Machine or Debt Trap: The Dilemmas of Driving
March 9, 7:00 pm-8:00 pmFree
Automobiles have always been promoted and sold as the great American “freedom machines.” But for too many of us, they have become vehicles of unfreedom. Drawing on interviews with formerly incarcerated men and women, Andrew Ross discusses all of the ways in which car ownership and car use can lead to detention, either through policing or auto loan debt traps, while serving, increasingly, as a channel of surveillance. In response, Ross will lay out a vision for an alternative transportation landscape, based on principles of mobility justice.
