Healing Our Justice System: Restorative Justice and the Law


Please join us for a full-day exploration of the role of restorative justice in our legal system. Speakers will analyze the intersection of restorative justice and the law, offer a trauma-informed perspective of restorative justice, explore how restorative practices can transform a variety of settings, and also narrow our focus on the considerable need for restorative justice in Chicago. Presenters include Fania Davis and Mark Umbreit.
