When: Tuesdays, July 20, July 27, and August 3, 2021
Time: 12pm – 2pm
The free weekly workshops, led by Cymone Fuller and Sia Henry of the Restorative Justice Project at Impact Justice, will explore how educators can bring restorative justice practices and human rights principles into the classroom—modeling alternatives to punishment, including mediation and agreement, that allow students to develop deeper empathy, patience, active listening skills, ownership over their learning environment, and responsible decision making to support their social-emotional wellbeing for years and decades to come.
The three-part training series will feature local community leaders and human rights defenders who have put these principles into practice in their work to combat racial and ethnic disparities inside the classroom and in their communities. Educators will learn how restorative justice practices can be applied to end the school-to-prison pipeline and improve community well-being.
You can choose to attend one or more of the upcoming sessions:
July 20, 2021: 1st session – Restorative Justice Frameworks and Paradigms
July 27, 2021: 2nd session – Building a Restorative Space in Your Community and School
August 3, 2021: 3rd Session – Stories of Human Rights Defenders Impacted by Restorative Justice
