A core goal of #ShutdownPL @ ICFP is to be more than a day of abstract “feel-good” discussion. Instead, we want this to be an ongoing conversation, and to encourage action to take place as a result. Moreover, as more and more organizations and people are coming forward to commit to action and measurable change, none of us want to fall back into old habits of complacency and superficial adjustment.

The accountability discussion track will discuss and then propose realistic but effective projects to keep our institutions, our communities, and ourselves accountable to our commitments. Before the event, we encourage our attendees to reflect on the following question: what are long-term commitments of social justice that you or your community have made or are considering making? These will seed our conversation towards action.
