Rape, Alton Sterling, And The Complexity Of Justice
Marissa J. Johnson

Thank you for exploring all of this — that relationship/community piece feels so important.

I’d love to also hear your thoughts on how trauma adds to the cycles of violence, and where treatment and healing for trauma for both Black men and women can fit into restorative justice, or perhaps, if it is a root cause, into transformative justice.

Having studied trauma when I was going through treatment for it, I was amazed at how much behavior and relational harm can be traced to past trauma (not always from major events) and perhaps even inter-generational trauma.

Like what you read? Give Amy Carpenter a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
