This year, several exciting resources have emerged that help build practices and strategies for Transformative Justice and Community Accountability:
TransformHarm.org is a resource hub about ending violence. It offers an introduction to transformative justice. Created by Mariame Kaba and designed by Joseph Lublink, the site includes selected articles, audio-visual resources, curricula, and more.
The What Really Makes Us Safe? website gathers several voices and hears what they each have to say about the same general questions: What is a community after all? How do we get people to change? Where is the movement headed? Created by Melanie Brazzell.
Fumbling Towards Repair is a workbook by Mariame Kaba and Shira Hassan that includes reflection questions, skill assessments, facilitation tips, helpful definitions, activities, and hard-learned lessons intended to support people who have taken on the coordination and facilitation of formal community accountability processes to address interpersonal harm & violence.
