Consent is Accountability
When dealing with harm in our communities, we sometimes ask ourselves, what could we have done earlier to prevent this harm? What can we do to build consensual communities to avoid this kind of harm? In this video, consent educators (Stas + Lea) discuss why they see consent as transformative justice and how we can use consent to learn concrete tools to negotiate power dynamics.
This video is part of the Building Accountable Communities video series. The Building Accountable Communities Project promotes non-punitive responses to harm by developing resources for transformative justice practitioners and organizing convenings and workshops that educate the public.
