Restorative Justice: A Path to Peace

I'm passionate about Restorative Justice and other Restorative Approaches. They're an effective way to repair harm within and between communities and peaceful communities are a foundation for global peace. Over the last decade I've been facilitating Peacemaking Circles and Restorative Justice Circles and I've seen the results - when conflicts are brewing, when victims of crime suffer and those who cause suffering learn to be accountable, when old unresolved hurts pile up until they erupt in fights, or when people simply need to come together, to listen and learn from each other and find a way forward together.
Now I've been invited to share Restorative Justice Approaches, principles and practices with Asian and Muslim professionals, peace activists and students who can take R.J. home to the communities where they live and work.
We'll be doing lots of R.J. role plays, based on real cases, or practicing with scenarios the participants bring, so they can experience R.J . approaches themselves.
I'll share all the information I've gleaned but a lecture on RJ isn't enough, reading a "how to" book helps, but isn't enough either. Experiencing R.J. makes all the difference. And experiential opportunities and lots of discussion is a big piece of what I want to share.
As a presenter and facilitator I'm a volunteer. I don't receive an honorarium, so I need your help to cover travel and other expenses!

Please consider how you might help spread R.J. and support this community based way of creating a peace filled world.
