Feminist Transformative Justice Writing Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In a media landscape where "justice" means punishment, is it possible to do journalism in the service of feminist, transformative justice? Our session will focus on what it means to write toward transformative justice. We will reflect on how the media impacts "justice," particularly in relation to women of color, and will discuss articles written through a feminist transformative lens. Participants will create the opening paragraph of an op-ed.
