Location: ONLINE (Zoom link provided about 24 hrs. before the session)
Contact: Heather Thompson,

Restorative Justice In Action or Restorative practices is a social science that studies how to improve and repair relationships between people and communities. The purpose is to build healthy communities, increase social capital, decrease crime and antisocial behavior, repair harm and restore relationships. Its applications will be visited in this series in the following fields: community healing, criminal justice, education, crisis intervention, and work & family.

These sessions will be shared spaces for application of restorative justice to that particular field. Participants with prior or active experience are encouraged to register. Facilitators will lead the space with basic tenets and best practices, and participants are encouraged to share their experiences as well. The sessions will also be ideal for those simply curious or wanting to learn. Our goal is to inject confidence in participants to take the methods of restorative justice (healing) and apply it to their areas of focus/interest/employment.
1) Awareness - raise awareness of restorative practices
2) Reflection - provide space for reflection and sharing of personal applications
3) Inspiration -  encourage those wanting to do the work
