Join the Socialist Feminist Working Group of NYC-DSA this fall for a reading group exploring the theory and practice of transformative justice, restorative justice, and community accountability. We will meet from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings from October 23 through December 11, for seven weeks total (skipping Thanksgiving week). Our format will include discussion of 3-5 articles per week as well as activities linking our study of transformative justice to our practice of prison abolition. Please fill out the interest form for the midtown Manhattan location.

This reading group is open to all people of all genders. Because of the sensitive nature of some of the topics discussed, this reading group will be an alcohol and substance-free space. However, we encourage participants to bring food to share and to join the facilitators for mindfulness meditation before discussions starting at 7:00 p.m.
