Mar 2, NYC: 2nd Survived & Punished National Convening
March 2, 2019
Join Survived & Punished for our 2nd National Convening
Join Survived and Punished for 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.

Survived & Punished (S&P) is a coalition of defense campaigns and grassroots groups committed to eradicating the criminalization of survivors of domestic and sexual violence and the culture of violence that contributes to it. The all-volunteer organization includes community organizers, survivor advocates, legal experts, and policy advocates including currently and formerly incarcerated survivors.
The national S&P coalition is led by a core of organizers from the survivor defense campaigns, the national Free Marissa Now Mobilization Campaign and the California-based Stand With Nan-Hui campaign; the Chicago-based organization, Love and Protect (formerly the Chicago Alliance to Free Marissa Alexander); and the California Coalition for Women Prisoners. S&P also has two strong statewide team based in California and New York focused on freeing criminalized survivors from prisons and detention centers through organizing and policy advocacy in the state.
