21 Jul Introducing the Rape Culture Intervention Toolkit
Join Project NIA & Hope Praxis Collective for an introduction to their new Rape Culture Intervention Toolkit.
From 6:30 PM until 8:00 PM
At Virtual Event
Presented by Project NIA and Interrupting Criminalization: Research In Action / firstname.lastname@example.org
The Rape Culture Intervention Toolkit was inspired by Mia Mingus's quote "death by a thousand little cuts" — a reference to the way that we do a terrible job of responding to the kind of lower-level harm that often leads to an accumulation of unchecked trauma. The objectives of the curriculum are to provide people with an understanding of how rape culture maintains the status quo in the US (and abroad), identify what power we have to check and transform rape culture, and to provide people with skills on how to make amends for harm from an abolitionist perspective.
The Hope Praxis Collective
We are a Milwaukee-based capacity-building collective organizing to provide support, practice, skillshare, and imagine new possibilities through abolitionist and transformative justice frameworks.In honor of those who have been doing abolitionist work for decades, our name, Hope Praxis Collective, is a direct homage to Just Practice Collective and Mariame Kaba who have taught us that hope is a discipline, a practice, and a form of collective care.
