Put on by Right to the City and SOIL: A Transformative Justice Project
This training will offer a nuts and bolts introduction to core concepts and principles of accountability, drawing examples of accountable and harmful practices from philanthropy. This training is meant to give participants a beginning framework to work to make the changes happening in philanthropy right now become common-sense, mainstream, and permanent. Participants will learn also about SOIL’s partnership with Right To The City as an example of how transformative justice principles and practices are being implemented at a social movement organization.
Transformative justice is a generative methodology for addressing harm and violence in ways that support survivors’ healing, harmers’ accountability, and community health and well-being, without relying on existing punishment systems. Mia Mingus's work in this field has focused not only on the social transformation needed to make state violence obsolete, but also the interpersonal skills that we must develop to engage in generative healthy conflict resolution and to transform harm on the path to abolition. Her organization SOIL is working to create the conditions for transformative justice to take root through political education, skills building and strategic partnerships.
