Do you have prior exposure to Restorative Justice and want to take the next steps in understanding it deeper and integrating it into your work, organization, or community?  In this interactive workshop, participants will learn and experience key Restorative Justice principles and practices. Both during and following the workshop, participants will receive technical support in developing and implementing Restorative Justice action plans.

Restorative Justice Background

Restorative Justice is a community-based approach to building community and responding to harm that echoes many indigenous traditions. It is a empathy-based, relationship-centered, and non-punitive philosophy that is put into action through facilitated group processes such as circles and conferences. Throughout the U.S. and globally, Restorative Justice is flourishing in schools, criminal justice systems, social service agencies, youth organizations, and families as a cost-saving substitute or complement to existing systems that are based on coercion and fear. As such, Restorative Justice has been shown to be an effective response to zero tolerance, the school-to-prison pipeline, disproportionate minority impact, mass incarceration, social isolation, and community-level conflict.

For an overview of Restorative Justice both in and outside the global criminal justice system, see the Center for Justice and Reconciliation's website<http://restorativejustice.org/restorative-justice/>.
