Community Accountability/Transformative Justice 101
December 8, 2018, 10:00am–5:00pm (registration & breakfast at 9:30 am)
Barnard University, Barnard Hall (James Room, 4th floor), 3009 Broadway
This workshop will explore basic principles of Community Accountability/Transformative Justice and engage in honest conversation about the challenges we face when using this framework. Using popular education and through stories we will deepen our understanding of this complex and intimate model. This 101 will offer a basic introduction to and overview of the core concepts of CA/TJ. It will be a space for participants to learn about TJ and how to begin thinking about community-based responses to interpersonal violence.
Participants in this workshop will NOT leave with the skills to facilitate CA/TJ processes. This is an introductory workshop intended to expose participants to key concepts, definitions and some basic examples.
This workshop is facilitated by Mariame Kaba. Mariame is an organizer, educator and curator who’s active in numerous social movements for prison abolition, racial justice, gender justice, and transformative justice. She is the founder and director of Project NIA, a grassroots organization with a vision to end youth incarceration, and a co-founder of numerous organizations including the Chicago Freedom School, Love and Protect, the Chicago Taskforce on Violence against Girls and Young Women and most recently Survived & Punished.
