Service to Justice . Jan 24-25, 2014. Washington D.C.

service to justice

Many of us entered social change work to be of service.  But what is it we serve?  Sometimes, the way we do our work actually gets in the way of  justice and self-determination. What would our work look like if it was specifically organized to increase the autonomy, authority and relatedness of the communities we serve?

Join Tavia Benjamin of The Black/Land Project for a conversation about how we use the principles of self-determination in our work,  and how you might apply them in your work, too.
