While Unitive Justice is best understood when it is experienced, this website is a best effort to briefly describe the uniqueness and the power of Unitive Justice. The larger vision includes creating a webinar about Unitive Justice and its implementation and a book that is soon to be published, Unitive Justice: Bending the Arc of Justice Toward Love. The 10 min. video below is from the May, 2016 workshop in Loveland, CO. at Sunrise Ranch. Three participants talk about the workshop experience.
THE ARCS: BENDING JUSTICE TOWARD LOVE
If your organization would like to sponsor a presentation by Sylvia Clute, please complete the contact form. Sylvia brings an urgent message about the need to be aware of the model of justice we choose. There is a connection between (a) punitive justice that teaches it is moral to harm others so long as the harm done is proportional to the harm experienced and (b) the sustained violence in the world. Peace in the world, protection of our environment, the elimination of deep pockets of poverty will be difficult to achieve so long as punitive justice is the norm. The system we are immersed in does not support the outcome we hope to achieve.
Until we have a viable alternative, punitive justice is our only choice. Unitive Justice offers a viable, tested parallel model of justice that we can create at the local level, a model based on the moral principle of lovingkindness. Unitive Justice is a system that supports achieving peace and a better world for future generations. Justice matters and we have a choice!
