Join us Oct 19: a conversation about survivor-centered criminal justice reform

Imagine a survivor-centered criminal justice system. Think of the support survivors would receive throughout the process. Imagine if survivors’ views on accountability and healing were truly heard. Think of the action and safety plans that would be developed if the criminal justice system were centered on meeting survivors’ needs.

Join us Thursday, Oct. 19, 11:30 – 1, as we hear Danielle Sered, a powerful and groundbreaking victim advocate and criminal justice reform advocate, speak about her work to better meet survivors’ needs, reduce violence, advance racial equity, and reduce mass incarceration.

A few years ago, we had the pleasure of getting to know Danielle Sered’s work at Common Justice, an alternative to incarceration and victim services program in Brooklyn. While Common Justice works with people who have survived (and committed) crimes like robbery and assault, we see how this innovative work holds lessons for our movement to prevent child sexual abuse and help survivors live full, healthy joyful lives.

We hope you’ll join us and take the opportunity to get to know about Danielle‘s work.

“Uncommon Justice” with Danielle Sered

Thursday, October 19 at 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Lewis and Clark College

Templeton Campus Center, Council Chamber

0615 SW Palatine Hill Rd. Portland, OR 97219

The event is free and open to the public. 

Because campus parking is limited, you may consider using Trimet or parking downtown and using the Lewis and Clark Shuttle to reach the venue.

Danielle will present a blueprint for how we can work to both reduce violence and mass incarceration. Danielle‘s work grapples with the world’s complexity and emphasizes meeting the needs of people harmed by crime, ensuring accountability, and advancing racial equity. Danielle‘s work challenges us to re-imagine justice. Her work and thinking are both provocative and inspiring.

Please join us in extending our thanks to our partners in this event: ACLU of Oregon, Criminal Justice Reform Clinic at Lewis and Clark Law School, and Partnership for Safety and Justice.

We hope to see you there!
