Description: Large-scale social and legal changes have produced a great deal of ripple
effects in people’s lives. How do we process and respond to harms that we consider to
come from larger forces - legislative, court decisions, international or domestic forces, and
others? How do we take steps in our personal lives? Do we see ourselves moving further
than the realm of the personal?
GENDER EQUITY- We will have a Restorative Justice Circle focused on personal approaches and social changes related to gender equity. We leave the scope broad enough that you can share as freely as you'd like about your own, authentic experiences within the umbrella of gender equity.
Objective: Provide space for people to reflect on how they process and/or take action when
large scale social forces change their lives. This topic looks at the intersection of RJ on a
personal level and RJ as it relates to societal transformation as it relates to gender equity and rights.
