EDI Community of Practice: What is Anti-Carceral or Abolitionist Social Work?
March 29 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
All faculty and PhD students are welcome to attend this collaborative EDI community of practice space to explore questions relevant to research, teaching and enhancing dialogue across our varied interests. This gathering is an opportunity to collectively explore key questions, critical debates and the potential for abolitionist praxis in our work.
Ruth Wilson (PhD Candidate) & Sly Sarkisova (Year 1 PhD Student) will facilitate this session.
