We’re taking a summer break!


Image text says: Want to get involved in Sheffield Transformative Justice Learning Group? Taking a summer break and back in September. New members welcome.

We are a small collective and many of us have experienced harm, are in the process of recovery and can still experience harm navigating in the world. Sometimes getting through the day can be exhausting and it can be hard to see that this is enough. I believe that allowing ourselves time and space to rest, recover and care for ourselves and each other (thereby resisting scarcity, urgency, productivity and other harmful white supremacist capitalist and patriarchal logics) is part and parcel of the practice of transformative justice. With this in mind we are taking a break over summer and will come back together in September.

If you are interested in joining us in September please get in touch, new members are very welcome. You can use the contact form or email julia.h.downes@gmail.com (STJLG coordinator).

Wishing you all a restful summer x


Finally, here are some great resources about resting as resistance:
