One Year Later: How Restorative Justice Ensures Accountability and Community (06/21/22)
In follow up to the first installment in this series, which provided an overview of what restorative justice is, this session will focus on the practical effects of restorative justice in the courts, how it can be used to truly enact accountability, and how it can build and repair our communities. The program will place a specific focus on how the use of restorative justice techniques can bridge racial and cultural divides and ensure that parties involved in the judicial process feel heard and are treated with dignity and respect.
