Community Accountability: Creating a Knowledge Base

This is a space to create an online collective knowledge base and resource center for community-based responses to gendered violence. It’s a resistance to the prison nation and the global lockdown. A commitment to survivors of violence and to the transformation of violence. A reflection of community practice, insight, and ingenuity. A practical space for tools, contacts, and resources, and a creative space to develop our imagination for doing the critical anti-violence work that we urgently need to do.

Here, you’ll find community accountability and transformative justice resources to support people responding to violence.  This site is also produced to share the 2012 collection, Community Accountability: Emerging Movements to Transform Violence, a special issue of Social Justice: A Journal of Crime, Conflict, & World Order.  The articles from this collection are uploaded to this website.  More about the issue can be found in the Editors’ Introduction.
