Healing Justice, explores the causes and consequences of the current North American justice system and its effect on marginalized communities. The film walks back through the history of violence that has led to our current system, bringing into focus the histories of trauma – on a personal, interpersonal, community, and generational level. This powerful documentary addresses the school-to-prison pipeline, the need for comprehensive criminal justice reform, and the importance of healing and restorative practices.
Designed for dialogue, Healing Justice is meant to prompt questions and open conversations, exploring trauma, justice, and healing:
- How do our current structures discount and dehumanize young people of color as well as our poorest and most vulnerable citizens?
- How does trauma impact us personally and interpersonally, as a community and throughout generations?
- How do these histories affect who is perceived as a ‘perpetrator’ and a ‘victim’ of violence?
- From the larger structure of the legal system, to how we treat youth in our communities; what are the alternatives to these models of addressing conflict?
- How can we address and change the racism embedded in punitive judicial systems?
- What is justice, really?
- How can restorative practices, such as restorative justice, be used to shift the way we address crime and violence in our communities to produce safer, healthier, thriving communities for all.
We will be showing the Film in three segments:
Jan 5 - The Impact of Trauma
Jan 12 - Redefining Justice
