Thu, April 27, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
See one way of imagining an alternative and join us for a conversation about resorative justice:
"Young people in the United States are entering the youth justice system in shocking numbers, and many seem to come out worse than when they went in... On the far other side of the world, modern New Zealand youth court has incorporated restorative principles of justice adapted from the roots of its indigenous Maori culture, bringing victims and offenders together amongst the community to resolve disputes."
"Can a community-based approach to justice derived from a structure conceived in New Zealand centuries ago give hope to the mean streets of the U.S.? Fixing Juvie Justice has some answers."
