The Collabortive / Rehabilitation

The Collabortive
The Collabortive

The Collaborative is an alternative to incarceration for women who have been accused of perpetuating nonviolent crimes. It is a way of practicing transformative justice which acknowledges individual experiences and identities and works to actively resist the U.S. model of mass incarceration. The central goal in transformative justice is not avenging the past, but creating a better future for the individual and for the rest of us.

The transformative approach seeks safety and accountability without relying on alienation, punishments or state or systemic violence, including incarceration. Rather than a reactive approach, it is a preventative approach based on inclusive education, healing, and community outreach. The key is working collaboratively as a community that grows in relation to the specific people and relationships involved.
