About

The Bay Area Transformative Justice Collective (BATJC) is a community collective of individuals working to build and support transformative justice responses to child sexual abuse. We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. We envision a world where communities can intervene in incidences of child sexual abuse in ways that not only prevent future violence and harm, but actively cultivate healing, accountability and resiliency for all — survivors, bystanders, and those who have abused others. We collaborate on community events and projects. We also serve as a resource for individuals and groups interested in transformative justice and child sexual abuse work. Contact us here with questions or offers to collaborate.

Currently, the BATJC is engaged in work preparing for our first trial intervention in 2017!  We are: building community capacity through a 6 month Community TJ Study; community workshops and trainings; developing an accountability model to be used with those who have abused, bystanders, and survivors; and building a network of community support people.
