A media report recently featured a woman who contributed last summer to Adler University’s Institute on Public Safety and Social Justice.

The Source article centers on Najjuwah Walden, who works to advance reproductive and sexual health, particularly as it relates to institutional racism and economic stability. She spent the summer of 2017 working with researchers in Adler’s IPSSJ — an organization that seeks to identify and implement effective solutions for transforming current public safety methodology.

“A generational survivor of sexual violence herself — meaning she, her mother and her grandmother are all survivors of sexual violence — she wanted to understand how their experiences were influenced by their economic instability and dependence on the environment perpetuating the violence,” the article said. “ … Coupled with her interest in sexual health, she continued this exploration into restorative justice and sexual violence last summer — first at Adler University’s Institute for Public Safety and Social Justice and then at the Morehouse School of Medicine’s Center of Excellence for Sexual Health.”
