Open Dialogue: Coercion, Punishment, Corporal Punishment and Child Abuse
(pt. 2) on Saturday, July 20th from 1-3 pm
We will continue our discussion from last month on the issues of structural violence against children and creating healthier communities and families. Please come to join our discussion and add your voice on ways to intervene against abuse. Kids always welcome!!!
Description: “Members of The Real School Houston will be discussing the issues around corporal punishment, punishment of children and child abuse/domestic violence in regards to fighting the oppression of young people and the large scale issues of systematic and interpersonal violence which plague our society. We will also be discussing strategies for intervening in situations where violence or other abuse is present for the safety of children in our community. The discussion will focus around oppression of children and the damage that these systems cause to us on a societal wide level. We seek to provide a radical analysis of these issues and provide strategies for a community based resistance to violence, abuse and oppression.”
Donations strongly encouraged.
