Description

Black Roots Alliance, Sacred Apothecary and Survivors Know are co-convening the Survivors Healing Workshop Series for survivors of gender-based violence and harassment to discuss abolition as a pathway to Black liberation. As survivors reimagining justice and expanding anti-carceral remedies to interpersonal violence can be hard to conceptualize when we have been raised in a society that prioritizes carceral systems and responses to sexual violence. Expanding restorative and civil options can open the door to solutions that not only center the needs of survivors but also address the root causes of violence. We believe it is important to divest from systems that uphold policing and prisons as the solution to sexual violence in order to invest in community-based interventions that promote BIPOC survivor liberation and healing. We hope to hold a supportive space for the tension and complexities and to lay the groundwork for a necessary paradigm shift in the way justice, accountability, violence, and community reliance are understood and approached.
