Restorative justice is an approach to combating crime that emphasizes repairing the harm caused by criminal behavior. Programs usually involve three big ideas: repairing the harm done to people, relationships and communities; meeting between the offenders and victims; and fundamental change in both sides. Join a panel of experts to hear how three cities are using restorative justice to support the victim’s healing and disrupt criminal behavior. Join us for an informative evening as we take a look at restorative justice. Washington native Lashonia Thompson-El shares her personal story of incarceration, rehabilitation, and re-entry. She’s currently a restorative justice facilitator. Then listen as a panel of experts discuss how three cities are using restorative justice to support the victim’s healing and disrupt criminal behavior.
