Event Description

The U.S. criminal legal system relies on "Retributive Justice" — punishment for wrong-doing — but there is an alternative! Restorative Justice works to heal people who've been harmed by criminal acts as well as those who've caused that harm. Join us for a virtual forum to learn from national experts about Restorative Justice, including how it is used as an effective alternative to incarceration, and from a panel of local practitioners who will share initiatives in our community in a variety of settings, including reentry.
