Description

The Event:

This Symposium is a national conference designed to teach the principles of Restorative Justice (RJ) and its approach to problem solving. Participants will learn about and engage in actual case-studies of how RJ’s theory, practices and research are being used throughout the world today as a successful solution to “healing harms.” This 2017 Restorative Justice Symposium promises to be a provocative and participatory event that is not to be missed!

We also have a limited amount of "Scholarship tickets" set aside for those who may not be able to afford the ticket price. They should contact us at CEOnonprofit00@gmail.com.
