Restorative Approaches to Sexual Harm and the Patriarchy

Friday, March 29, 2019 - Sunday, March 31, 2019

Columbia School of Social Work
1255 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY


Join The Ahimsa Collective for a three day training, where participants will explore restorative approaches to sexual harm and the systems like patriarchy that support it; they will engage in experiential exercises around these topics; they will explore methodologies for facilitating a healing and accountability with and for people who have committed severe violence and survivors of it; they will offer frameworks and skills and tools you can use in your work. They don’t have all of the answers. They expect this training to allow participants to explore collectively the many strategies needed to address sexual harm and the wounds of patriarchy using restorative justice approaches. In the facilitator team, three are survivors of sexual abuse, two are formerly incarcerated, and all are people of color.

Participants include: Sonya Shah, nuri nusrat, Mike Nelson, Richard Cruz and Alison Espinosa-Setchko
