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, particularly in the city of Oakland. 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, we are: building community capacity through Community TJ Studies; 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.
