This workshop seeks to create a space to reflect on what needs to change within left organizing to create accountable movement communities that are willing and capable of fully supporting all those impacted by sexual violence. We will explore what it would take to create organizations willing to name, understand, and shift the power lines that enable sexual harassment and assault. This would include creating an environment where people would be more willing to support those harmed as well as to work with those doing the harm to take accountability and commit to change. We will also discuss how this accountability work is part of organizing for social change, rather than as something separate from it. The goal is for participants to leave the workshop with some ideas on how to begin the steps toward creating accountability within organizations for support, intervention, accountability, and prevention.
