About the Project

We are a group of DePaul students, staff, faculty, as well as affiliated community activists and organizations who are developing everyday, collective, community-based interventions into everyday oppression and violence in our communities. Through strategy sessions, peacemaking circles, and other transformative practices, we offer space for reflection, dialogue and skill building in order to develop collective and community-based strategies for healing, intervention, accountability, and transformation.
 
The project is grounded in, indebted to, and inspired by the community accountability and transformative justice theory and praxis of the Chicago based organizations Community Justice for Youth Institute, Project NIA, Young Women’s Empowerment Project, and the Women and Girls Collective Action Network as well as Incite! Women of Color Against Violence, Communities United Against Violence, the StoryTelling and Organizing Project, Creative Interventions, Generation Five, Ubuntu, Audre Lorde Project, Queers for Economic Justice, among others.
