January 30, 2021 –
We are thrilled to share with you an invitation to Against Punishment, a training resource created by Project Nia and Interrupting Criminalization. This abolitionist curriculum is anchored in the principle that "punishment actually undermines safety." The first of a four-part series, the unit "Exploring Different Forms of Justice" will guide us through conversations on punitive, restorative and transformative justice, and exercises in interrupting harm as we encounter it in our community and daily life.
We hope that you will share this invitation widely, and join us on Saturday, January 30, 2021, 10am - 12:15pm PST, to explore these ideas together.
Future units (dates TBD) include: Crafting Non-Punitive Responses to Harm; Another World Is Possible, Abolition through Storytelling; Surviving Harm/Violence & What Would Justice Look Like?
