Our second Restorative Justice Institute, in October 2021, was open to the public and attended virtually by over 300 participants. This event included live-streamed keynote and panel presentations, break-out sessions for discussion, and skills-based workshops.
Three key models of restorative justice in policing were featured:
– Police-nonprofit partnerships that enable police to directly refer cases to restorative justice programs
– Police-community dialogues to rebuild trust in law enforcement
– Restorative practices by police to take responsibility for current and historical harm caused by their departments
“The institute was well organized and facilitated. My attention was kept throughout the two days, and I found I needed to be on top of my game during the breakout sessions, which were outstanding and interactive.”Former Institute Participant
