Restorative Ecosystem Conference Details

Educators  (click here to see the course details)

Have you ever wanted to implement Restorative Practices in your school in a way that included families and community involvement? Do you want to focus on improving your school culture and climate?

Educators will learn how to integrate their current or future Restorative Practices processes with community stakeholders and increase parent participation by including them in the implementation process. We will provide strategies and tools for implementing RP in your schools.  Many educators want to know how to find the time to implement restorative practices in the classroom and we will answer that question! We’ll also give you specific tools to build relationships and provide techniques & materials for you to teach classroom content while using relationship building processes. We want you to leave better equipped to improve classroom management. In this season of COVID-19 a lot of restorative practices have shifted online. We will learn how to connect with your student utilizing virtual circles.

Law Enforcement

Learn how to build trust, strong relationships, and transparency, and heal past harms that have arisen between police and their communities.  You will take away tools to co-produce a continuum of restorative practices with other stakeholders in your cities ecosystem in order to create stronger and safer communities. You will learn how to develop restorative diversionary processes, for youth and adults.  Additionally, we’ll discuss how to create opportunities for those who have caused harm in the community and to repair the harm allowing them to grow and become productive citizens through the utilization of Restorative Practices. In light of the recent tension between law enforcement and the community due to the egregious acts towards unarmed people of color, we will create opportunities to listen to the needs of impacted people, explore ways to address reform and develop clear next steps for you and your department to start down the path to establishing relationships and trust.

Faith and Justice

You will learn how to work alongside the communities that you serve to build trust, advocate for justice and develop supportive relational practices. Faith leaders can expect to learn how to be a part of the Restorative Practices’ implementation plan on school campuses, how to facilitate the healing process when harm has happened between community and law enforcement, how to advocate for people who have been oppressed by the justice system and how to address race & equity, and how to advocate for Restorative Practices. 

Governmental Agencies, Community Leaders, & all stakeholders:

You will learn what restorative justice is, how to work together to advocate for restorative practices throughout your city and how to co-produce restorative systems within governmental agencies, law enforcement, schools and the community at large.  

 

Restorative Philanthropy

Equity and inclusion come at a price. You will learn how to use your financial resources to further social equity movements as it relates to addressing culture and climate in our city. The question of “How can I get involved financially”, will be answered. Come learn how to use your time, talent, and treasure to be an equity change agent in our City, State and Nation.

In addition, all participants will learn how to address cultural understanding, race, and equity by using the Restorative Practices to break down barriers of assumptions.
