We are a growing community of Georgia Voters demanding that government officials take real, tangible and swift action to repair the damage inflicted upon our Black American communities by the chattel slavery system, Jim Crow, Lynching, Redlining, Anti-Black Racism, and Domestic Terrorism. Together, we will support candidates and lawmakers who advance legislation to award reparations to families descended from enslaved Black Americans.
Transitional justice is an approach to systematic or massive violations of human rights that both provides redress to victims and creates or enhances opportunities for the transformation of the political systems, conflicts, and other conditions that may have been at the root of the abuses.
A transitional justice approach thus recognizes that there are two goals in dealing with a legacy of systematic or massive abuse. The first is to gain some level of justice for victims. The second is to reinforce the possibilities for peace, democracy, and reconciliation.
To achieve these two ends, transitional justice measures often combine elements of criminal, restorative, and social justice. Transitional justice is not a special form of justice. It is, rather, justice adapted to the often unique conditions of societies undergoing transformation away from a time when human rights abuse may have been a normal state of affairs.
