Join us in welcoming back a longtime member of our Charis family, Alexis Gumbs as she reads from her essay in The Revolution Starts at Home and shares some of her strategies and wisdom about creating transformative justice in all of our communities.
Based on the popular zine that had reviewers and fans alike demanding more, The Revolution Starts at Home
finally breaks the dangerous silence surrounding the "open secret" of
intimate violence—by and toward caretakers, in romantic partnerships,
and in friendships—within social justice movements. This watershed
collection compiles stories and strategies from survivors and their
allies, documenting a decade of community accountability work and
delving into the nitty-gritty of creating safety from abuse without
relying on the prison industrial complex.
Fearless, tough-minded, and ultimately loving, The Revolution Starts at Home offers potentially life-saving alternatives for creating survivor safety while building a movement where no one is left behind.
This event is part of our Organizational and Community Building Project and is co-sponsored by Southerners on New Ground (S.O.N.G.)
