The transformative justice (TJ) movement developed out of the restorative justice (RJ) movement, in large part because of the failure of restorative justice to address gender violence. Restorative justice is based on principles of community accountability, but before a community will hold someone accountable they have to believe what that person did was wrong. In cases of gender violence, community members often side with the perpetrator rather than the victim. This session will consider an alternative to restoration: transformation. The transformative justice movement, primarily led by women of color, does not try to restore communities but to transform them and to create communities based on principles of justice. In this Salon, we will discuss the difference between RJ and TJ while considering what transformative justice strategies look like in practice.
