This audio/visual zine was created for collectives of people engaged in leftist organizing who are interested in (but may have yet to practice) using transformative and restorative justice to address and intervene in interpersonal and institutional violence. Written at an intersection of Asian American Studies and Organizational Studies, this project draws on my experiences, wisdoms from my community, and resources from folks who have long been at the forefront of movements to end violence. Addressing how we can continually align our practices with our politics, it contains lessons I have learned through my work in restorative justice, transformative justice, and other forms of organizing throughout the years. This includes a mix of frameworks, case studies, and tools in relation to how they have informed my journey. I hope it can serve as a resource to help support people dedicated to challenging larger patterns of violence in their communities and save folks some time and energy along the way.
