Keynote Address: “Here we are Amazingly Alive”: Holding onto our ethics and each other working in contexts that lack social justice

How can we stay fully alive in our difficult work alongside women who suffer violence, oppression and marginalization? How can we do this difficult work in ways that are in accord with our collective ethics for social justice? How can we keep on keeping on in times of “scarcity” amidst abundance – especially in the present and future climate where the “scarcity of resources” will set us against each other. Vikki will reflect on how to care for ourselves collectively, attending to the political realities that shape our decisions, and holding to our ethics to reshape the political context. Our collective aim is to act in solidarity with each other, holding the women we work and struggle alongside at the centre.
