Color of Violence 4 (COV4) Call for Proposals:
EXTENDED DEADLINE: September 15, 2014
More about COV4:
INCITE! is excited to announce the upcoming conference, Color of Violence 4 (COV4)–Beyond the State: Inciting Transformative Possibilities. This gathering will mark INCITE!’s fifteen years of engaging in grassroots organizing projects, critical conversations, national actions, transnational campaigns, and community building strategies to end colonial, racial, and gender-based violence against women of color, trans and queer people of color, and our communities.
COV4 will highlight emerging strategies and new frameworks that focus on ending violence without relying on policing, mass incarceration, restrictive legislation, and other systems of violence and control. Although on-going systems of criminalization and punishment are occupying and devastating our communities, those systems are still often considered the front-line response to violence within and against our communities. Challenging multiple interlocking forms of violence requires new conversations and transformative approaches.
