Restorative practices are not just for the justice system, they can also be used for addressing conflict and building relationships in our schools. Introduction to Restorative Justice for Schools will explore how restorative practices have the potential to dismantle oppressive systems and create more equitable organizational outcomes with our youth in education.
Restorative Justice is about changing systems to address harm more meaningfully and undo systematic patterns of institutional racism and oppression. Restorative Practices are the ways in which individuals and communities can more meaningfully build relationships and address harm when it happens, and work towards restorative justice. Introduction to Restorative Justice for Schools invites you to take a look at the systems in your school through the lens of restorative values and make the changes necessary to live in integrity with those values.
Participants will engage in a supportive learning community and walk away with strategies and resources to bring back to your workplace/organization.
