Center for Transformative Justice

Through student support programs, community outreach, and interdisciplinary conversations across San Diego State and beyond, the Center for Transformative Justice explores justice that transforms—our selves, our relationships, and our communities.

Informed by the pioneering work of Project Rebound, the CSU initiative bridging the worlds of incarceration and higher education, our understanding of transformative justice includes repairing harm in relationships and changing systems that cause harm. Whether justice is framed in terms of freedom or equity, opportunity or protection, collective responsibility or being made whole, it is a process that reveals itself in relation to our own and each other’s humanity. Transformative justice work as we imagine it is internal, relational, structural, and ongoing.
