Program Description: This session will look at challenges to movement building and movement "success" through the lens of recovery as established in the 12 steps and 12 traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. 

Abstract: Using Theater of the Oppressed games and Image Theater techniques, participants will review the 12 steps as they will have been adapted specifically for working in a non-religious, gender-neutral context. The group will explore how the practices outlined in recovery programs can be applied within the context of liberatory practice. Participants will create images of those aspects of "self" present for self, community and movement space and explore what manifestation of "higher power" might be required to overcome these "defects". 

Challenging Questions
1. What are the "defects" that you recognize as preventing forward momentum for you, your community, social justice groups concerning liberatory practice and how might it be considered on the scale of entire movements?

2. What concept of higher power can you embrace outside of a religious concept that might revive and sustain you, your community and/or social justice groups concerning liberatory practice?

3. What name might be given to the compulsions that negatively affect your own ability, your community and movement groups to engage effectively in liberatory practices?
