“What’s It To Me?” The Accountability Lab @ Community Justice Forum
The Accountability Lab is an emergent space for identifying, growing, and valuing the skills we need to practice transformative justice, in our arts spaces and beyond. “What’s It To Me?” is a two-part session bookending the Community justice Forum. It will offer forum participants tools, prompts, and frameworks for thinking about how abolition and other big, urgent ideas apply to our own daily lives and how we relate to power, conflict, community, and change.
