Restorative Justice discussion – May 24th

Back in November, the Taskforce held an introductory circle, led by Ora Schub of Community Justice for Youth Institute, for our members to learn more about restorative justice.  There was so much enthusiasm after this event that we decided to hold a more in-depth follow-up session.

The Taskforce is partnering with Rape Victim Advocates & Community Justice for Youth Institute for this next dialogue.  This will be a 5-hour event on the afternoon & evening of May 24, in which we will set values for our discussion through a circle process; learn more about restorative justice practices; and discuss their applicability to cases of sexual and dating violence against girls & young women.

Space for this event is very limited and it’s already filling up!  If you’re interested in learning more, please email chitaskforce@gmail.com.

EDITED 3-27-11 TO ADD:  This event is at capacity – if you are interested in being placed on the waiting list, please email chitaskforce@gmail.com.  Thanks!

Restorative justice: circle & discussion on November 22

Restorative Justice is a key strategy in creating safer and more supportive schools and communities. The Taskforce is excited to announce that on November 22 at 5 pm, Ora Schub of Community Justice for Youth Institute will be leading an introductory circle for Taskforce members, followed by a discussion about how this work plays out in a school setting.  This will be a great opportunity to experience the circle process and learn about the uses of restorative justice practices in schools.

Space is extremely limited for this, so please RSVP as soon as possible if you are interested in participating.
