The Transformative Health and Justice Research Cluster is a peer-led, interdisciplinary, and cross-sectoral research network catalyzing equity-oriented studies at the interface of health and justice. We apply strength-based research approaches for decolonizing, anti-stigmatizing, and culturally safe engagement, policy development, and community advocacy for and with people who are impacted by the criminal legal system.​ 

We acknowledge with gratitude and respect that our activities are held as uninvited guests on the stolen, traditional and unceded ancestral lands of the səl̓ilwətaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsleil-Waututh), Stz'uminus, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) peoples.
