Organizing Transformative Justice Responses to Gender-based Violence and Campus Sexual Violence

Shares resources in this video to build local capacity to better respond to systemic harm, create adaptable accountability models, and expand the healing options available for a diverse range of survivors. As university campuses struggle to meet the call to address sexual violence, significant questions about what actually causes and could actually end this harm continue to surface. Movement organizing against policing and criminalization have highlighted that prosecution of individuals is a problematic and insufficient way to address sexual violence over the long-haul, and often leaves survivors without support or resolution. Abolitionist organizers have cultivated Transformative Justice approaches to harm and violence, arguing that we must approach this work looking at root causes and collective transformation.
