Marlee Liss 2023 Keynote: Restorative Justice for Sexual Harm

Friday, April 28, 2023 at 6:30pm

Global Scholars Hall, Great Room 123
1710 E. 15th Avenue Eugene, OR

Come listen to Marlee Liss speak about her sexual assault case in 2019, which became the first in North America to conclude with restorative justice through the courts. Liss fought for the man who raped her to go to therapy instead of criminal trial and eventually, they met in an 8-hour restorative circle. After sharing with the media, her inbox began filling with thousands of messages from survivors sharing their stories and why they wish they had known about alternatives to the punitive system, like restorative justice. Hence, the focus throughout the program is to inspire folks to create a vision of justice that is synonymous with healing through informative storytelling by taking a vulnerable and educational approach to talking about this alternative to the punitive system. In an environment rooted in hope and empowerment, listeners will learn about this justice pathway that breaks cycles of harm and ignites cycles of healing.
