The Bay Area Transformative Justice Collective holds community learning and skills building spaces called Labs free and open to the community, a couple times a year.

These Labs are hands on practice spaces primarily focused on building up our skills and sharpening our tools around various topics that undergird the work of transformative justice. Labs most often explore and develop ideas, values, practices, and learnings that have to do with communication, accountability, and networks of support. Labs are often facilitated through a combination of traditional teaching, group discussion, and small activities. We highly recommend that Labs are attended with people in your pod, to best allow you to practice all the new skills you’re learning.

Previous Lab topics have included:

  • How to Give a Good Apology
  • Communication and Feedback
  • Pods and Pod Mapping
  • How to Use “The Talk” as a Tool to End Child Sexual Abuse
