Creating Brave Space: Engaging with Integrity & Grace

Friday 2:00pm | Lecture Hall

In social justice organizing, faith communities and other spaces “”safe space”” has become a widely used framework for boundaries of engagement. But…is it working? Or just creating fear, confusion and an unrealistic expectation of pain free, conflict free space? Brave Space is another framework by which we can bravely risk mistakes, call each other to more truth and love and co-create a space where we each have room to grow as activists while still being accountable to one another. Come explore the Brave Space Invitation with creator Micky ScottBey Jones and take brave space back to your community.
