Credits:

Description:

Students examine the principles and practices of Transformative Justice through case studies. Students learn how social justice advocates – especially those working with an analysis of intersecting gender, race, and economic injustices – both critique dominant institutions (such as law, prisons, medicine, psychiatry, government, capitalist economies, media), and create community-based alternatives to responding to the harm associated with these institutions. Students explore emphasis placed on coalition and ally-ship building across differently marginalized and advantaged groups.
