We are highlighting this organization because it engages in a “community justice”-oriented approach to political change.
INCITE! Women, Gender Non-Conforming, and Trans people of Color Against Violence is a national activist organization of radical feminists of color advancing a movement to end violence against women of color and their communities through direct action, critical dialogue and grassroots organizing.
Example of their community justice framework:
We call on social justice movements concerned with ending violence in all its forms to develop community-based responses to violence that do not rely on the criminal justice system AND which have mechanisms that ensure safety and accountability for survivors of sexual and domestic violence.
Types of projects and programs:
- A national organizing collective
- Organizes events for critical dialogue such as conferences, summits, book readings, and tours
- Conference: Color of Violence 4 (COV4)–Beyond the State: Inciting Transformative Possibilities.
