WREN Summit Session 2- From Disposability to Accountability: Disrupting Harm in SC
September 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
CONTENT WARNING: Please note that in this series, we will be discussing responses to harm. As a result, during the webinars there may be some explicit mention or discussion of harms such as interpersonal violence, abuse, sexism, racism, and white supremacy.
In South Carolina, we face multiple threats to public health like widespread evictions, record unemployment, climate disaster, violence, and police brutality. These crises, worsened by COVID-19, bring into sharp focus the reality that we cannot rely on the state to protect our communities. Aparna Polavarapu will lead us through a workshop to examine some of the basic tenets of transformative justice, discuss strategies to build accountability, map out sources of support to get us through times of crisis, and explore the challenges of applying these practices at the community level. During the second half of the workshop, participants will be invited to engage in breakout groups to further explore the principles and practice of transformative justice.
