Beyond Survival: Strategies and Stories from the Transformative Justice Movement: Ejeris Dixon & Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha
Afraid to call 911, but not sure what to do instead? Here are strategies for accountability beyond the criminal justice system.
In this collection, a diverse group of authors focuses on concrete and practical forms of redress and accountability, assessing existing practices and marking paths forward. They use a variety of forms—from toolkits to personal essays—to delve deeply into the “how to” of transformative justice, providing alternatives to calling the police, ways to support people having mental health crises, stories of community-based murder investigations, and much more. At the same time, they document the history of this radical movement, creating space for long-time organizers to reflect on victories, struggles, mistakes, and transformations.
