Self-Accountability and Movement Building

September 18, 2020

Accountability is a human skill, not something that happens to bad people. How many times have movements been pulled apart not because of external forces but because of internal conflict and strife? So often we ask how others can be accountable without first looking internally and asking, “How have I been accountable?” Join us to explore the role self-accountability plays in building strong, sustainable movements. We’ll discuss how self-accountability—that is accountability with and for ourselves—is essential in building accountable communities and the movements to sustain them.
