QUESTIONS TO REFLECT ON

In situations where ourselves or our family members have experienced acts of violence--when we say "we want justice we deserve," what does that mean? What does justice look like?

How can systems and policies within education, housing, mental health services, and environmental policies be altered or created to facilitate some level of public safety, accountability and/or care?

If we're thinking about someone who has committed acts of violence, why is that kind of violence possible? -Angela Davis

How do you practice accountability in your personal relationships? How are those values reflected or not reflected in our "criminal justice system"?

What makes someone deserving of imprisonment?
