Restorative Practices


In this experiential workshop, participants will learn the basics of restorative justice (RJ), looking at the definition of the phrase and the history behind it. The themes explored through interactive activities include: rethinking justice, exploring harm, developing restorative approaches, and applying RJ values to our lives. Participants will experience activities created by Let's Circle Up, the first prison restorative justice workshop created by incarcerated people themselves.
