Transformative Justice

Transformative justice (TJ) is a social and political movement that explores the question: how do we respond to harm in our own communities without creating further harm? This question is more relevant than ever, in the wake of the recent Black Lives Matter protests and calls to defund the police. The systems we currently use to deal with people that have committed violence and harm -- jails, prisons, and the police -- only create more violence and harm. In this introductory TJ workshop, participants will explore what “harm”  is and learn how our current systems only create more harm; explore community-based solutions for when harm happens instead of relying on jails, prisons, and the police; and engage in an interactive activity to better understand how they can address harm in their own communities.
