This interactive keynote for the February 25th Community Day of Education will discuss how we can shift our punitive culture towards a culture of healing-centered accountability. We will look at the limitations imposed on us through urgency culture, and what tools restorative justice and transformative justice offer our communities. We will discuss how learning to hear the emotions, needs, and boundaries of other members of our community, while expressing our own, is a crucial first step to shifting our culture towards healing-centered accountability.

Honeycomb Justice is a group of restorative and transformative justice facilitators, educators, and D&I specialists dedicated to collective healing and communal building. We share a collective vision of an equitable, just society rooted in anti-racist practices and methodologies. Just like the honeybee, we believe in communal building.

Spring 2021 Common Good Practitioner-Scholar Residency

Restorative & Transformative Justice with Jasmyn Story and Honeycomb Justice

“Independence is inseparable from interdependence, and individuality expands from being solitary to being in solidarity”
– Fania Davis

This year’s Common Good Practitioner-Scholar Residency, presented by the Ethics and the Common Good Project and cross-campus collaborators, aims to deepen our shared understanding of Restorative Justice and Transformative Justice by strengthening our capacity to engage in restorative approaches to community building and address harm and injustice.

How do we build relationships, institutions, and communities that are connected by resilience, communication, and accountability? How can we transform experiences and histories of conflict and harm through collective healing and collective change? Together, we aim to build skills to forge sustainable culture shift through dialogue and action at Hampshire College and beyond.

The residency will begin with virtual events open to all as part of Spring 2021 Community Days of Education.
