    Ep 292 - One Million Experiments Part 3: The Friendly Fridge with Selma Raven and Sara Allen

    1:37:55

    Welcome to One Million Experiments, a brand new podcast exploring how we define and create safety, wellness, and protection in a world without police and prisons. Through longform interviews with movement workers across the world who have created community-based safety projects, 1ME expands our ideas about what keeps us safe, and celebrates the work already happening to build solutions that are grounded in transformation instead of punishment. On this episode, we talk with Selma Raven and Sara Allen of the Friendly Fridge BX, a community food distribution point and mutual aid experiment at 242nd Street and Broadway in the Bronx. The duo talks about how the experiment has been transformative for all, the steep learning curve that the two of them had as the fridge got up and running, and how the act of experimentation taught them to act boldly and without permission.
