Jammy C.(Torres-Caraballo) Millet, MSW, is a Social & Racial Justice warrior and advocate. She is the daughter of Puerto Rican migrants who settled in Dorchester, Boston, Massachusetts (occupied land of the Massachusett, Wampanoag and Nipmuc people)in the 1980s. In experiencing the trauma of identity intersections and the complexities that come with being a Puerto Rican on the mainland, she learned that she had experienced the internalization of Anti-Blackness through her lineage (The enslavement of African peoples, the Taino Massacre, Spanish Colonizers). While in her (un)learning process, in 2015, as a Behavior Support Team Lead within the Boston Public Schools, she was introduced to the insidious, disproportionate impact of punitive school disciplinary practices on Black and Brown youth. It was then, she began her work and research on the school to prison pipeline, and came to embrace Restorative Justice in her search for eradicating punitive responses to student behavior and Racial Justice.

Jammy continues to be a dedicated Social Justice Education professional within the Boston Area and has been for nearly 10 years. In 2018, she began her work in Higher Ed and in 2020, she founded StayJust, a Restorative Justice Education and Implementation Organization; created to challenge power imbalances, decolonize education, dismantle oppressive educational practices/pedagogies and to  denormalize white supremacy within Higher Ed spaces.

Jammy's work is rooted in educating communities on the core values and practices of Restorative Justice through the lens of Social Justice, Equity Mindedness and Empowerment.
