Moving at the Speed of Trust: Disability Justice and Transformative Justice @ Virtual

Conversation with Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha and Elliott Fukui on the intersections of disability justice and transformative justice.

About this Event

Learn more about the event, get the details of how to join in, and watch new videos for this online conversation on the event page.

“Disabled folks have never been able to rely on the systems that are in place or those systems have been incredibly harmful to us.” – Elliott Fukui

In response to heightened levels of abuse and violence experienced by people with disabilities, disability justice organizers have developed tremendous knowledge and creative approaches to care, safety, and preventing and stopping violence without relying on the state. How do disability justice strategies and knowledge inform transformative justice practices? How are disability justice and transformative justice interconnected?

“What would our transformative justice work look like if we put everyone’s access needs at the center?” – Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, in “Cripping TJ,” an essay in the groundbreaking new collection Beyond Survival co-edited with Ejeris Dixon

How is anti-ableism essential to transformative justice? How do we start with the shared values of self-determination and the belief that no one is disposable to build capacity for personal and societal transformation?

This online event will take place in coordination with the release of five new videos in the Building Accountable Communities series, featuring transformative justice facilitators and organizers reflecting on key questions at the heart of experiments in addressing harm. Please watch these videos on the event page as a starting point for our conversation.

ACCESSIBILITY: This event is free and everyone is welcome. Live-captioning will be provided. The event livestream and captioning will be available on the event page. Please email any additional access needs to hdector@barnard.edu.
