Spiral of Injustice

On October 30, Dr. Dan Prinzing, Executive Director of the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights in Boise, ID, presented a webinar framing civic responsibility through the lens of the “Spiral of Injustice.”

The Spiral presents a downward trajectory that explores injustice through the devolving sequence of language, avoidance, discrimination, violence, and elimination. As a model, the Spiral counters static images of injustice and rather presents the fluidity and/or the internal and external motions of a community in which injustice becomes publicly apparent. Is it our civic responsibility to interrupt the Spiral of Injustice?
