New Videos in the Building Accountable Communities Series
We recently released three new videos in the Building Accountable Communities series: Everyday Practices of Transformative Justice, The Modern Roots of Transformative Justice, and What is Accountability?
The Building Accountable Communities Project promotes non-punitive responses to harm by developing resources for transformative justice practitioners and organizing convenings and workshops that educate the public.
Created by Project NIA and the Barnard Center for Research on Women. Video produced by Mariame Kaba, Dean Spade, and Hope Dector.
Plight of the Girl Publication
Project NIA founder and director Mariame Kaba has written a new zine designed by artist Naimah Thomas. This publication was written with high school students in mind. It’s a great way to discuss the criminalization of Black girls and also the school to prison pipeline. Please feel free to share with educators, young people and others in your communities.
Restorative Justice at Home: A New Resource
Restorative Justice practitioner Jennifer Viets has developed a new resource, “Talking Circles At Home and Parenting Restoratively.” The resource asks and answers the following questions: How can we use family Talking Circles to deepen our closest relationships with honest and open communication? What would it mean to intentionally create our own family values? What is a restorative conversation and how can we use it to practice naming as well as repairing harm with everyone in our household? What is the value of a Peace Corner for children and adults, and how can we build one?
