Restorative Justice Day
April 21, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Restorative Justice Day is an annual event co-sponsored by the School of Social Work, the Graduate School of Education, and several community organizations. The day focuses on restorative practices, which are a set of approaches to education and the criminal justice system. The restorative approach emphasizes restoring the relationships that are broken when harm has occurred, as opposed to simply punishing the offender. RJ Day brings together both local and national voices in the restorative movement, and gives students, faculty, and community members a chance to discuss issues such as the role of police, issues of youth, building stronger, more diverse communities, and zero-tolerance policies in schools.
