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.
Some questions to reflect on as you watch the documentary:
- What is your response to the statement: “Ours is a justice system that harms people who harm people to show that that harming people is wrong and so our system just replicates that harm”?
- What would our justice system look like if it were to focus on rehabilitation and redemption?
- There is a healing shift shared in the film. Did you perceive that shift? What did you hear and see in the film that confirms what might allow that shift to happen?
