About Me




Bio:

I’m an Indian abolitionist researcher, poet, and propagandist living on ancestral Canarsee land also known as New York City. 
My work focuses on national and local jail moratoriums, supporting an end to caste apartheid, anti-surveillance obfuscation practices, and building intergenerational, interclass organizing capacity for abolitionist work in the so called US and beyond. I write and think about debt, disability, gender and ways of knowing across transnational histories.


Longer Bio:
As a designer, Mon has primarily worked with nonprofit and grassroots collaborators, from NYC based projection group the Illuminator to the Me Too Mvmt. She is known for her co-authorship of 8 to Abolition, a response to reformist tactics to end policing, incarceration, and completely delegitimize the carceral state. She is currently a Create Change Artist Fellow at The Laundromat Project, and a Building Community Power Fellow at Community Justice Exchange, focusing on the National No New Jails Network.


Mon’s art practice seeks to merge abolitionist worldbuilding with creative play -- to see tools like drawing, zines, weaving, painting, murder mysteries, quilts, crafting, paper art, poetry, and more as capable of teaching us about the world we hope to create together and the one we’re leaving behind.
