We invite you to join JCUA for a a membership-wide conversation and teach-in about abolition on Monday, September 14, from 6:00-7:30 pm on Zoom. THIS EVENT IS FOR JCUA MEMBERS. Become a JCUA Member today here: https://jcua.org/get-involved/membership/
Over the past several months, discussions about abolition have come to the forefront among movements for social justice. We know that abolition is a loaded and often misunderstood concept. It involves two simultaneous processes: dismantling systems that perpetuate oppression, and just as importantly, envisioning new systems that sustain a just and equitable society. Abolition is not simply taking away one harmful institution and keeping the rest of the world the same; it’s about building a society in which everyone is protected, served and cared for.
On September 14, a team of staff and members will host a conversation and teach-in about abolition for the entire JCUA membership. We want to hear from you — hear where you are coming from, what excites you, what makes you scared or angry, and if and how you think JCUA might adopt an abolitionist framework for our work in the coming months and years.
We highly encourage everyone involved in and committed to JCUA‘s work to attend this conversation.
A Zoom link will be sent to everyone who RSVPs. As always, please be in touch with any questions prior to September 14.
