About this event

The Introduction to Restorative Practice Trainings are facilitated by experienced practitioners in the field of restorative practices. This training is designed for community members, organizations, schools and criminal justice institutions who desire to understand the basic principles, values and processes of restorative practices and an intervention in our society. Participants will receive an introduction to the restorative practice continuum through affective language, small impromptu conferencing, community building circles, and restorative justice conferencing. The overall mission is to create caring community climates based on respect, responsibility, and repair of harm. Participants will learn and experience the difference between restorative and retributive (or punitive) justice through personal stories and experiences.

Organizer Erie County Restorative Justice Coalition

Organizer of Restorative Practices Circle Certificate Training

Formed in 2013, The Erie County Restorative Justice Coalition is a coming together of people from across our county who believe that conflicts are often best resolved by the people involved. By creating a safe space where all individuals involved in a conflict can come together and discuss what happened, who was harmed, and who bears the responsibility for repairing the harm, ECRJC facilitators are helping to change the way our community addresses conflict and crime.

We are an ever-expanding group of individuals who share a desire to improve our community through the use of Restorative Justice in resolving interpersonal conflict and addressing criminal cases. We host regular trainings in Community Conferencing and Talking Circles, and work diligently to get the word out about Restorative Justice and its many uses. 

 

We are working to build our presence in Buffalo City Court, Buffalo Family Court, The Buffalo Public Schools, and across the community.
