Savannah, Georgia: A Historic City Looks Toward the Future of Public Safety
Reimagining Public Safety and Recommendations for Best Practice Models in the City of St. Louis
In this project, we, students from Harvard’s Creating Justice in Real Time course, collaborate with Mayor Tishaura Jones and the City of St. Louis to reimagine public safety in a way that centers local input, addresses racial stratification, and prioritizes community well-being. We contribute to this vision by researching national best practice models for community violence intervention and developing a database for comparing local and national data.

The People v. The Klan – An Educational Resource Guide Intended To Shed Light On The Events Portrayed In The 2021 CNN Documentary
Since the end of Reconstruction, following the end of the Civil War, white resistance to democracy and African American freedom resulted in lynchings. This period of white supremacist violence largely took place in the American south as a form of domestic terrorism. From 1882-1968, 4,743 lynchings occurred in the United States. 3,446 of those who were lynched were African American. African Americans of all ages and genders were subject to the inhumane, extrajudicial plunder of their flesh for the sake of entertainment and spectacle.
This syllabus is designed to provide historical context to the civil case of Beulah Mae Donald v. the United Klans of America, the criminal cases on behalf of Michael Donald, and the CNN documentary “The People v. the Klan” created by Blumhouse Television.
From Cycles of Harm to Cycles of Opportunity: Justice for Edna Mahan Correctional Facility and the State of New Jersey
After decades of sexual abuse inflicted upon women incarcerated at Edna Mahan Correctional Facility (EMCF), New Jersey’s sole state prison for women, the Governor’s decision to close the facility presents an opportunity for the state to reimagine justice and change the narrative around incarceration from cycles of harm to cycles of opportunity. Through interviews with Department of Corrections staff, women incarcerated at EMCF, community-based organizations, and grassroots advocates, we find that the process designed to deliver justice for women abused at EMCF is insufficiently inclusive of those harmed and insufficiently imaginative of alternatives that would bring about transformative, cultural change.
