20 Feb Defending Survivors, Liberating Futures
Survived & Punished National Convening
From 9:00 AM until 5:30 PM
At Columbia University, Jerome Greene Hall
435 West 116th Street, Room 104, New York, NY 10027
Survived and Punished
Join Survived and Punished for a day of panels, strategy sessions, and community building -- all with a focus on launching defense campaigns to free criminalized survivors of gender violence.
The goals of the national convening are for participants from across the country to build on a shared analysis of the criminalization of survival; learn directly from criminalized survivors of violence; strategize ways to deepen local efforts and build a long-term national/transnational agenda through coalition building and cross-movement coordination; and identify successful coalitional strategies between efforts inside and outside of prisons and detention centers.
