Thursday, April 29 at 1:00pm to 2:00pmVirtual Event
Post #MeToo there's been a lot of interest in restorative justice approaches to address sexualized violence. Though it is drawn from justice and healing practices from indigenous communities around the world, the current North American movement in Restorative Justice originated in the 1970's as an approach to addressing harms, including criminal harms, by reckoning honestly with impacts and valuing the needs of everyone involved. Rightfully, discussions about justice and justice systems are more active in all aspects of our society currently. However, with Restorative Justice praxis being increasingly discussed as an alternative to many types of harm, it's harder to know what the term actually means and who it's for.
Whose harms count? Whose stories are centered? Whose needs shape responses?
How exactly is Restorative Justice different from the other systems we are used to? How does it look when actually applied?
To hear the answers to these questions and more - join us in conversation with the Center for Dialogue & Resolution about the fundamentals of restorative justice and how it can be applied to communities and individuals.
