While calls to abolish policing and prisons have always existed, they continue to gain attention and movement as Black advocates and activists continuously work to stop police violence and uproot White supremacy. As abolition calls continue to grow, prevention educators are needed to answer questions like: where would the perpetrators go if prisons do not exists? This session will focus on how prevention educators can facilitate conversations that do NOT allow for a co-option of survivors’ experiences with violence to be used as a tool of White supremacy. Participants will leave the session with personal reflection centered on the question: what is my role in creating community accountability?
This workshop is sponsored by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) as part of the Prevention track to support Rape Prevention and Education program.
