Structural Violence Project

This project seeks to open dialogue and raise awareness about structural violence occurring in our communities—within Rutgers, the city of Newark, the state of New Jersey, the United States, and the global community. As those who suffer under structural violence are also more likely to have their suffering silenced, this project seeks to amplify the voices of the marginalized, and provide a starting point for the prevention of structural violence. In an effort to engage Rutgers students and the broader Newark community in this dialogue of prevention, and in the building of equitable institutions, this project includes lectures, films and workshops to help us envision a future free of structural violence.
