Abolition is not only about dismantling colonial and carceral systems – it is about building the world we want to live in. In the final webinar of this three-part series, abolition and transformative justice through a decolonial lens will be introduced as a path forward for social work. Participants will be invited to re-imagine their social work practice, teaching, and research with an eye towards Indigenous sovereignty, Land Back, resurgence, and self-determination.
1. Introduce participants to abolition and transformative justice through a decolonial lens
2. Examine the implications of abolition and transformative justice for social work practice
3. Explore current social movements working towards Indigenous sovereignty, Land Back, resurgence, and self-determination and identify social work’s responsibility to centre these efforts in practice, research, and education.
