How To Support Friends When They Have Been Abusive
How do we humanize the conversations about people who have committed acts of inter-partner abuse? Host Nancy Kahn, along with guest Jesse Markus, opens up a meaningful exploration of how society fails to rehabilitate people with a history of inter-partner abuse.
Tonight’s guest, Jesse Markus, shares personal stories on his history in drug and alcohol recovery; his experiences of being publicly canceled and shamed; his views on this controversial topic informed by his leftist politics, prison abolitionism mindset, and his commitment to community and mutual aid. Jesse is collaborating with others to create a burgeoning fellowship for people who are recovering from patterns of abusive behavior.
