Many activists agree that the prison industrial complex works against efforts to rehabilitate perpetrators, and undermines attempts at humane communities. When we step outside of the punitive paradigm, what resources are left to deal with conflict in circles of activists, lovers, and friends?
Modern technology has deeply changed our professional, political, and personal lives. How do these new modes of being affect the way harm is perpetrated, processed, and healed? What makes a person “toxic”? When, if ever, is exile appropriate? Is it possible to call in, as opposed to calling out?

This event is happening as a part of Sustain’Alive, a weeklong event series centred on activism, society, and the planet.
