Accountability and Community: A Discussion About Justice

Monday, April 16th, 7-9 PM

@ The Orange County Rape Crisis Center

1506 East Franklin Street, Suite 302

Chapel Hill, NC-27514

What does “justice” mean in our work to end sexual violence and support survivors?

Please join community activists and volunteers from the Orange County Rape Crisis Center for an exciting discussion about community-based strategies for accountability and healing. This interactive discussion will address the pros and cons of the criminal justice system as a means of responding to sexual violence, and explore alternatives beyond it. Panelists will discuss transformative and restorative justice, alternative models for redressing harm and holding aggressors accountable, and our experiences with these processes in our own communities. Don’t miss this opportunity to re-imagine justice as we work together towards a world free of gender violence and all oppression!
