October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and we’re going to spend some time throughout the rest of the month exploring community responses to domestic or interpersonal violence.
On today’s show we talk with Mimi Kim, founder of Creative Interventions and co-founder of INCITE! She has been a long-time activist, advocate and researcher challenging gender-based violence at its intersection with state violence and creating community accountability, transformative justice and other community-based alternatives to criminalization. As a second generation Korean American, she locates her political work in global solidarity with feminist anti-imperialist struggles, seeking not only the end of oppression but of the creation of liberation here and now. Mimi is also an Associate Professor of social work at California State University, Long Beach.
Creative Interventions has just released the Creative Interventions Workbook: Practical Tools to Stop Interpersonal Violence, which is a companion workbook to last year’s Creative Interventions Toolkit. The 100 page workbook features key tools, worksheets, and ideas. You can purchase a paperback version of the book from AK Press, or download it for free at the links below.
