Transformative Justice

Transformative Justice (TJ) is a philosophy and community process of responding to incidents. When an incident happens, TJ focuses on the accountability and healing processes of those directly involved as well as the broader community; seeking to divest from oppressive structures that are at the root cause of harm. TJ emphasizes socioemotional learning and liberation.

The Transformative Justice Team is an interdisciplinary group of BASE staff who work together to support our young people and school in finding new, adaptive ways to manage conflict. The TJ Team may coordinate mediations as well as peace circles and family circles. The Young Transformative Justice Crew is a socially-diverse group of students who are trained in Peer Mediation and Justice Panel. Knowing that youth are the solution, Young TJ Crew members volunteer to give back to the BASE community from a peer-to-peer model.

As part of the efforts in TJ, Katherine Tucker is designated as BASE’s Respect for All liaison.
