As a Sites of Conscience member since 2014, the Sacred Ground Project is pleased to announce the launch of a new podcast series called Transitional Justice in America, a project of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience. Each of the podcast's 6 episodes features conversations between a US-based and an internationally-based social justice advocate.
The first episode debuts June 16, 2022 and you are invited to the launch webinar - a panel discussion among representatives of three of the participating organizations at 10 am EST: Click here to register.
"Transitional justice describes the measures countries put into place to address legacies of conflict and human rights abuses. In the absence of any formal transitional justice mechanism in the US, Sites of Conscience are ideal places to facilitate and foster discussion around truth, justice, and reconciliation. To help American sites learn from the work already being done around the world, we paired up US-based Sites of Conscience with Sites of Conscience members in Colombia, The Gambia, South Africa, and Sri Lanka - all countries that have, or are currently undergoing transitional justice processes. In this series, participants will revisit these conversations, sharing what they have learned with you, our listeners. This podcast is a program of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience. Production by Better Lemon Creative Audio."
