Racism Workshop

Racism and other prejudices make our criminal justice system unfair and can make our communities volatile.

Restorative justice practices focus on the unique situation and specific individuals involved, including community members whose harm may be hidden.

Healing those who have been harmed and strengthening the community fabric are primary purposes of restorative justice, along with accountability. These practices encourage self-disclosure for better understanding and collective resolution that increases competencies and confidence for the next conflict.

No matter where we live or exactly what differences divide us, restorative justice practices can be useful tools for community repair.

The presentations and workshop will present differences between conventional and restorative justice; involve participants in practice circles, and offer application models from Kansas and around the world.  Faculty members are encouraged to bring their class to 107 Grubbs Hall on Thursday September 11th at 2:00 p.m.
