No Perfect Victims Network Gathering

Between 1977 and 2007, the population of U.S women prisoners grew by 800% with an annual growth rate doubling that of men over many years. The vast majority of incarcerated and criminalized women (trans and non-trans) have previous histories of domestic and sexual abuse. This gathering will engage participants on how to pro-actively support and advocate for survivors who live at the intersection of gender violence and criminalization. We will highlight the experiences of grassroots organizations and defense committees in supporting those who don’t fall into the “perfect victim” narrative and we will share a new toolkit for those who want to do similar work. Participants will learn how to use digital organizing to raise awareness, funds and gain supporters for their campaigns. This network gathering is invite only.

Coordinators of this network gathering are Mariame Kaba, Stacy Suh, Tasasha Henderson, Ash Stephens, and Hyejin Shim.
