“Transforming the Culture of ‘Power Over’: Compassionate Accountability”
March 8 @ 7:00 pm EST
Together we can transform the culture of dominance.
The Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable invites you to attend “Transforming the Culture of ‘Power Over’: Compassionate Accountability” on Tuesday, March 8 at 7 p.m. The virtual event will help participants make key distinctions among safe relationship cycles and the dynamics that occur within relationships based on abusive values of dominance and superiority.
The presentation will be led by JAC Patrissi, Jason Patrissi and Regi Wingo of Growing a New Heart, an organization that aims to facilitate respectful and ethical power relationships and communications in families, workplaces and communities. The event will also feature break-out discussion groups.
Participants will leave with a sense of next steps for imagining community-based transformative justice interventions that address problematic behaviors, without necessitating expulsion or exclusion.
The event is inspired by the White Ribbon Campaign, which raises awareness about the prevalence of men’s violence against women and brings to the table those crucial to ending relationship violence – men. It’s presented by the Roundtable’s White Ribbon Group and follows the group’s successful event in March 2021, “A Call to Families: Discussing Healthy Masculinity with Young People.”
