Event description
Mount Mary University will host a morning of learning and discussion about restorative justice with social activist Fania Davis.

About this Event

Join us for a keynote and moderated Q&A session with Social Activist, Restorative Justice Scholar, Civil Rights Attorney, and Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow, Fania Davis.

Davis co-founded Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth (RJOY). RJOY works to interrupt cycles of youth violence and incarceration, disparately impacting youth of color, fueled by punitive school discipline and juvenile justice policies of youth violence and incarceration.

Davis’ close childhood connection to victims of the 1963 Sunday School bombing in Birmingham, Alabama, set her career path early in life. She has received the Ubunti Service to Humanity award, the Maloney award, and World Trust’s Healing Justice award. The Los Angeles Times named Davis a new civil rights leader of the 21st century.

Hear Fania Davis' story, and listen to and discuss the concepts and development of institutional shifts toward restorative approaches that actively engage families, communities, and systems to repair harm and prevent re-offending.

Due to limited seating, registration is mandatory for this event.

This program is made possible in part through thoughtful endowments established by Virginia Cornyn '62 and Nancy Cheski '65.
