The NYC Transformative Justice Hub Presents

"How to Communicate Your Boundaries"

Everyone seems to share an agreement that boundaries will make our relationships healthier, our self-care more resilient, and our communities safer. But how do we communicate our boundaries? Who teaches us, and where do we learn about holding respectful agreements with ourselves and others? How do we balance our needs with dynamics of power, consent, and responsibility?

This political education workshop will offer space to reflect on our habits and practice boundary-setting with peers. Participants will be invited to engage in reflective and interactive activities and bring examples or experiences from their own lives into the space.

Facilitator — Nico Fonseca is a queer, sick gender deviant nuyorican, recovering organizer and creator. Their current work explores unfolding the intersections of desire, intimacy, and violence as experienced by marginalized peoples. They journey through this with co-conspirators, lovers, and chosen family to develop and build on safety strategies cultivated by our communities.

2:30pm - 5:00pm: TJ RX Lab (Open *only* to those who come with pods, have completed the intake form beforehand, and have been scheduled with the Hub Coordinator)

TJ Rx Lab is a space where people involved in community accountability processes or those working to develop them can come and get guidance, consultation, and space to process + practice. The labs will include TJ practitioners who can offer consulting, as well as general peer support. To participate in the labs, folks must fill out an intake form before the event. Participants in the labs must also come in pods (groups of at least 3 people) to build the TJ practice of working in community with others and to ensure that people engaged in the work are not doing so alone.

INTAKE: https://nyctjhub.com/public_intake.html

We invite people to bring snacks and drinks to share. We will provide a few things but appreciate support from the community to supplement. Please feel free to bring your own food, as well as a water bottle!
