can you all talk concretely about some approaches that are promising to protect survivors of significant violence and child abuse? We know what doesn't work but can you talk about some of the approaches you have seen work in the days or months after violence?

I think we assume this system MUST be working for some people somewhere, but how many of us have actually seen it work well for any survivor? The emperor has no clothes.

I have to log off but thank you for this amazingly rich conversation!!
Jake Fawcett
01:35:10
Yes, Alisa. We can't replace police with social workers because we have already deputized social work with its own form of coercive and deadly state power.

I am hearing a lot of appetite among our membership for re-thinking criminal legal solutions to violence... What they want support on is what does that practically mean and what do they do with survivors who come to them now who are in immediate danger.
