Community Women and Youth Forum on Memorialization and TJ

Women and young girls who had their own personal experiences of war and/or violence from the Moneragala district gathered in Colombo to learn about the concept of Transitional Justice (TJ.) This forum, held in October 2019, was to also raise awareness on how memorialization and the sharing of experiences between adults and youth could effectively promote reconciliation. The intergenerational dialogue between adult women and young girls helped to highlight women’s role in working together on memory initiatives for reconciliation.
