Restorative Justice in our Schools: Building Sustainable, Community-Based Solutions to Conflict and Harm
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.
