“Call it Conversation” Workshop at Anarchist Book Fair Saturday

April 5, 2011
Our Workshop:


Sat 12:45-2:15 (balcony)
Interpersonal violence is intensely private, and the silence surrounding abuse is part of what keeps it alive.  To create strong, sustainable communities we need to break the silence and create dialogue about a radical response to abusive behavior.  While there is some discussion on consent and accountability, little has been said about the moment when abuse comes out of the closet and into a community.  We need to ask ourselves many questions.  Who is responsible for community safety?  What is the best way to call someone out on abusive behavior?  What does accountability look like?  How can we as a community plan to deal with difficult situations without splitting into factions or falling apart?  Join Support New York as we explore the complexities of community response to abuse.
