Those on the left and right alike decry “cancel culture.” But what is “canceling” someone but a public attempt to hold them accountable? How can we effectively hold individuals and organizations accountable without the disruption and privacy violations that often work opposite of what is intended, and can discourage those who have been harmed from reporting it?

We will discuss the necessary components of a survivor-centered, trauma informed accountability process that is not based upon organizing around other people or "Trial by Twitter." Building accountability into our institutions and leaders means we don’t have to destroy or “cancel” them in order to recognize and repair harm. Organizers will leave with the tools to begin transforming their community spaces in healthy, positive ways to provide needed accountability and demonstrate leadership.

Target audience is anyone with an interest in leading or supporting efforts to combat toxic cultures in their organizations, workplaces and other movement spaces, by limiting harm caused by harassment, bullying, racism and misogyny.
