Decolonizing Justice Resource Guide

This page houses resources from the "Decolonizing Justice: Advancing Community-Grown Justice Solutions" convening. Session recordings and additional resources from this pathbreaking event will be posted in early December.   

Thank you for joining us for “Decolonizing Justice: Advancing Community-Grown Justice Solutions,” a week-long series of free online conversations, panels and interactive workshops centered on legal empowerment and community-based justice strategies in the US. This gathering, which drew hundreds of participants from across the US, was designed to create space for critical thinking, discussion and visioning approaches to people-centered justice, fostering equity and inclusion, and democratizing the law that elevate and grow local legal knowledge, capacity and power in communities at a time of transformative change.
