Becoming an Active Bystander with Cradle Community
October 26 @ 11:00 am PDTSliding scale
About this Event
Together we will build our collective understanding of what violence in public space looks like, and how we can intervene and respond to this violence in safe ways. As abolitionists, our work comes from a perspective that centres community accountability and survivor-centered approaches.
Cradle is a collective of facilitators, organisers, educators and artists finding ways to make space for curiosity, compassion and creativity. In our mission to build a world with transformative justice responses to violence, we believe we all need to develop the skills to support radical approaches to collective care and healing in our communities. As a collective of individuals with complex identities and ancestries, we hope to reach beyond borders and binaries with this work and the legacies we follow as we pursue it.
