Restorative Justice in Action: Toward a Restorative Society

The U.S. has the highest incarceration rate of any country and does a very poor job both in reintegrating the incarcerated into society and in helping heal the wounds of victims of crime. Fortunately the Restorative Justice Movement is working hard to reshape our entire approach to the legal system and is beginning to gain traction in many states. Formerly incarcerated activists and leading Restorative Justice practitioners share their powerful stories of transformation and their strategies to help us become a truly restorative society. With: Rose Elizondo, co-founder, San Quentin Restorative Justice Interfaith Roundtable; Garry Malachi Scott, Re-entry/Community Restorative Justice Coordinator for Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth (RJOY). Other participants TBA.
