The US is experiencing a rise in local efforts to address historic and contemporary injustices using transitional justice discourse and methods. This panel brings together diverse examples of communities addressing the legacies of slavery and colonization of Native Americans, as well as anti-immigrant policies and the War on Terror. By focusing on local initiatives, panelists highlight the power of communities to instigate justice practices in the absence of state accountability.
