For the last 20 years, people have found World Trust Films to be an effective pathway to building community and capacities for working towards justice and racial equity.
Designed for dialogue, Healing Justice is meant to prompt questions and open conversations, exploring trauma, justice and healing.
The film walks back through the history of violence that has led to our current system, bringing into focus the histories of trauma – on a personal, interpersonal, community, and generational level.

·       What is justice, really?

·       Why is healing on both individual and collective levels so important and so often an overlooked component of justice?

·       How does history affect who is perceived as a ‘perpetrator’ and a ‘victim’ of violence?

·       From the larger structure of the legal system to how we treat youth in our communities, what are the alternatives to these models of addressing conflict?

·       How can restorative practices, such as restorative justice, be used to shift the way we address crime and violence in our communities to produce safer, healthier, thriving communities for all?

·       How does trauma impact us personally, interpersonally, as a community, and throughout generations?

Watching films allow individuals to simultaneously self-reflect and learn while offering a common touchstone for conversations with others to discuss our deepest needs, hopes and strategies for creating a more just community and world.
