2019 Convening

S&P 2nd National Convening, NYC 2019

| Defending Survivors & Liberating Futures

Welcome to the 2019 Survived and Punished Convening! The convening will feature a day of panels, strategy sessions, and community building — all with a focus on launching defense campaigns and organizing to free criminalized survivors of racialized gender-based violence.

The goals of the national convening are for participants from across the country to build on a shared analysis of the criminalization of survival; learn directly from criminalized survivors of violence; strategize ways to deepen local efforts and build a long-term national/transnational agenda through coalition building and cross-movement coordination; and identify successful coalitional strategies between efforts inside and outside of prisons and detention centers.
