Natalie Holbrook-Combs has worked against the punishment system and for collective accountability and healing for 20 years. Natalie's work is centered around ending life and long sentences in Michigan. Organizing with people in prison and people who have been to prison, through her paid work with the American Friends Service Committee’s Michigan Criminal Justice Program, has been the most meaningful calling and privilege imaginable. She also organizes with Liberate Don’t Incarcerate (LDI), a Washtenaw county abolitionist organization, committed to dreaming and working into existence a county rooted in healing and transformation, not punishment, vengeance, and cages. Two of the greatest gifts she has experienced in her organizing have been through building with Siwatu-Salama Ra’s Freedom Team and Tashiena Lanay Combs’ Freedom Team.
