SWG Calling In the Calling out Culture

Tue, Feb 13 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:15pm
Campus Center 103/104 Combined
Loretta Ross Lecture Series I

What is Calling Out? Calling someone out is the public practice of criticizing a person or a group for something you think is politically incorrect. We all call people out. We can choose instead to call people in. Calling In is an accountability process based on love, not punishment, that is restorative, not punitive, that seeks to heal, not harm. Calling In is compassionate to survivors, abusers, and the community by addressing accountability, safety, and power dynamics. This workshop series will discuss the practices for developing a Calling In Culture to build a U.S. human rights movement.
