Session 3: Monday, Nov. 9, 7:00 pm (Central time):

Restorative Justice and Care-giving in the Movement, in Society, and in the Family

The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the gender and racial gap that defines U.S. capitalism as never before, especially within the family, where new burdens have been placed upon women especially. What is the connection between the family and capitalism and how can restorative justice enable us to confront the alienated human relations that define it? A suggested reading is “Gender and the Family in Capital,” in Heather Brown, Marx on Gender and the Family.

Opening the discussion: Rehmah Sufi
