Danielle Sered: Until We Reckon, Five Years In

The award-winning “radically original” (The Atlantic) restorative justice leader, whose work the Washington Post has called “totally sensible and totally revolutionary,” grapples with the problem of violent crime in the movement for prison abolition

“Profoundly necessary.” —Michelle Alexander, The New York Times

A Conversation with Bestselling Author and Founder of Common Justice, Danielle Sered

IN THIS HOUR EPISODE, Danielle Sered, a survivor of violence herself, shares with us insights into what her hopes were in writing the globally-esteemed book Until We Reckon: Violence, Mass Incarceration and A Road To Repair (New Press, 2019) and some insights into her process five years ago that led to one of the restorative justice world's most game-changing tomes, bridging us from theories and evidence into the deeply intimate details of practices that meet the needs of survivors of violence, independent of the traditional justice systems in the US and beyond. She introduces us to four key areas that are to this day the foundation of her work with Common Justice, and reflects on what she has observed since the 2019 publication.

Common Justice develops and advances solutions to violence that transform the lives of those harmed and foster racial equity without relying on incarceration.

In New York City, we operate the first alternative-to-incarceration and victim-service program in the United States that focuses on violent felonies in the adult courts. Locally and nationally, we leverage the lessons from our direct service to transform the justice system through partnerships, advocacy, and elevating the experience and power of those most impacted.

Rigorous and hopeful, we build practical strategies to hold people accountable for harm, break cycles of violence, and secure safety, healing, and justice for survivors and their communities.
