Workshop: Can we imagine a world without punishment?
Thinking about love and justice with Kai Cheng Thom
Writer, performance artist, and community healer Kai Cheng Thom invites us to think about love and justice in this workshop focused on transformative justice within the queer community. Thom’s fourth book, I Hope We Choose Love: A Trans Girl’s Notes from the End of the World, was published by Arsenal Pulp Press in Fall 2019.
The workshop is open to all and is held in parallel to QAF’s SUM Gallery’s visual art exhibit “Yellow Peril; The Celestial Elements” curated by Love Intersections (Jen Sungshine, Jay Cabalu, Kendell Yan, David Ng).
