Danielle Sered is the Executive Director of Common Justice, a non-profit that develops and advances solutions to violence that transform the lives of those harmed and foster racial equity without relying on incarceration.
In her groundbreaking new book, Until We Reckon: Violence, Mass Incarceration, and a Road to Repair, Danielle Sered dives deeply into the question of violence while providing alternatives to help end mass incarceration and increase safety. Widely considered one of the leading proponents of a restorative approach to violent crime, Sered asks us to reconsider the purposes of incarceration and argues persuasively that the needs of survivors of violent crime are better met by asking people who commit violence to accept responsibility for their actions and make amends in ways that are meaningful to those they have hurt—none of which happens in the context of a criminal trial or a prison sentence.
Khalil Muhammad, professor at Harvard and former director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, will be holding a discussion with Danielle Sered on the issues and questions that arise from the book.
