Transformative Justice

"Transformative Justice seeks to provide people who experience/d violence with immediate safety and long-term healing and reparations while holding people who commit violence accountable within and by their communities. Accountability includes stopping immediate abuse, making a commitment to not engage in future abuse, and offering reparations for past abuse. Such accountability requires on-going support and transformative healing." 

St. Mary's offers an occasional series of Learning Circles to explore how to bring transformative justice to our community. Next series planned for Fall 2022 . Registration required, please contact the Parish Office.
