transformative_justiceHot on the heals of NYC ABC‘s letter-writing dinner in observance of Black August, we are excited to host an event to help all folks engaged in revolutionary struggle. While our organizing is primarily focused on support for political prisoners and prisoners of war, we understand the need for developing and sharing skills to build a world without prisons. To that end, we are excited to host a restorative justice workshop.

Folks are facilitating restorative justice trainings across the country, sharing knowledge about alternatives and resistance to the carceral state’s so-called “justice.”

In this workshop we will discuss the principles of transformative justice and how to apply them in order to destabilize abuse culture and make our communities safer, without cops or the state.

Strong movements and interdependent relationships make attempts to shut down our struggle obsolete. Let’s build our capacity for defending our communities and movements together!

This workshop will be lead by one of our comrades, an anti-capitalist and feminist activist and survivor of gendered trauma, who has been learning about transformative justice in radical spaces both through literature and trial & error in order to strengthen her community and organizing spaces in Denver.
