This workshop invites CEO’s, Team Leaders, front-line workers and interested others to explore how we can work for social justice in ways that resist contexts, language, and practices that perpetuate the very conditions we seek to overturn. In coming together, we will be invited to critically reflect on the connections and paradoxes between community work practice and the concept of social justice doing. Social justice-doing offers a way to center ethics, and support solidarity, in order to (enable our ability to) collectively sustain our work, reconnect with hope, and better respond to the conditions that sustain injustices.
Guide to the workshop content: A reflective session of the language that informs our practices / moving beyond the focus on "symptoms" and "pathology" and the medicalization of suffering on communities, as well as the ways we work togeather to address cultures of violence.
