The Mobile Abolition Library is a collaboration between sheri crider and Bernadine Hernández and Martín Wannam, members of FRONTERISTXS Collective in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The library was designed, built and organized by sheri crider in conjunction with her Art For Justice Fellowship. The project leverages multiple artist and community collaborations to create this ambitious project. Delilah Montoya, John-Mark Collins, A Good Sign, ACLUNM. In addition to these incredible partners, BOOKWORKS has been essential in hosting the book drive for the library.

The Mobile Abolition Library is an initiative pushing against one-dimensional narratives of crime and punishment. The library holds over 300 books, a rotating collection of abolition centered zines, regional abolitionist seed for distribution a digital portrait archive of incarcerated narratives. The project underscores the importance of re-imagining public spaces as living, dynamic spaces that can amplify marginalized voices while supporting complicated conversations to envision a more equitable future. The Mobile Abolition Library is an initiative pushing against one-dimensional narratives of crimes and punishment.
