Welcome to the devi co-op (tdc)! the devi co-op (tdc) is a grassroots QTBPOC-led survivor cooperative, designed to incubate radical solutions to end and prevent gender-based violence at its root causes. Cooperative members firmly ground themselves in lenses of transformative justice, abolition feminism, and cooperative labor politics to inform their organizing. The co-op emerged from several intersecting needs to build a Southern liberatory home for survivors of gender-based and state violence. This space is dedicated to organizing for survivor’s rights and implementing healing-focused, community-centered, and consent-based methods to prevent and end gender-based violence.
The hub officially formed December 2020, initially as a dreamscape between co-founders E Lim (they/them) and Jenani Srijeyanthan (they/she/them). In February 2021, TDC secured a fiscal sponsorship with Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta, as well as a subject-matter sponsorship from Raksha, Inc. That same month, TDC formally launched its Healing Justice Lab and Survivor Defense Project.
tdc believes in the liberatory promise of transformative justice and abolition feminism. Through the Healing Justice Lab and Survivor Defense Project, we work to disrupt and create alternatives to carceral landscapes as, with, and for Georgia survivors of gender-based violence.
An equitable South where intergenerational community care and transformative justice disrupt and prevent cycles of violence.
