Making Sense of Safety Interfaith Roundtable

Location: 
127 W. 127th St. Conf. Rm. 432, Harlem, NY 10027
Safety is a foundational concept for the anti violence movement, and is often narrowly defined and speaks to only certain people’s contexts. Nevertheless, safety often means vastly different things to different people, families, communities, institutions, systems.

At this month’s roundtable, we will discuss different meanings of safety;  including physical, psychological, social, moral and spiritual safety, particularly moral and spiritual safety,  in our relationships, and in our communities whether it be the work, faith and/or activist, artist, communities we are part of.  
  • Where do and don’t we feel safe ?  
  • How do we define safety for ourselves?
  • How do our understandings and experiences of safety shape our spirituality and worldview?

 All are welcome.
