Maria ScanelliMaria’s passion for ending cycles of harm began as a young child. She saw how individuals, families, communities and systems repeat unlearned and unhealed lessons, which leads to cycles of harm. Life led her to Restorative Justice (RJ) and the philosophy has become a way of life more than a job. Maria has been a volunteer for the Dept. of Corrections and the Oregon Youth Authority since 2008 as a Restorative Justice Group Facilitator and as a Dialogue Facilitator for serious and violent harms. She completed her MS in Conflict Resolution from Portland State University in 2008 and joined Resolutions Northwest in 2011. She has taught college and high school classes in RJ and has been a trainer, dialogue and circle facilitator for youth, families, adults and organizations for over 12 years. She most appreciates the constant learning, unlearning and relationship building that is essential to dismantling the sticky webs of oppression. “You can’t be neutral on a moving train.” Howard Zinn
