This chapter, written by HEARD’s co-founder Talila “TL” Lewis, uses case studies and real life stories to illustrate how racism, classism, ableism, and other oppressions intersect to create and shape how marginalized people are made vulnerable to surveillance, criminalization, police violence, and all forms of incarceration.

This chapter is crucial for legal workers, advocates, interpreters, and community members who want to learn more about deaf/disabled people’s experiences in prison and policing systems.
