Liberation ethics emerged out of the struggles of groups to move from suffering, exploitation, and oppression to human dignity, creativity, and worth. What are the challenges of liberation today, both for personal change and social justice? How can we be on the side of liberation? And where is the line between individual liberation and exploitation of others? Our Leader, Jone Johnson Lewis, will reflect on the complexities of liberation, especially for those in more privileged positions of advantage or power.
Resilience is a systematic adaptation of the oppressed self under the arbitrary imposition of the political order. Emancipation is the liberation of the self from the oppressive imposition of the political order upon the self. – Bruno De Oliveira
