About this event

Are you between the ages of 12 and 20?

We’re calling on you! Join us in an introductory conversation, movie night (with pizza!), and following conversation about your experience with disciplinary actions in school. These conversations will help us work together to create the kind of education experience you deserve.

Once you sign up we will send zoom links for the virtual meet-ups on October 27 & November 10 via email.

Organizer Erie County Restorative Justice Coalition

Organizer of Solutions Not Suspensions Youth Event

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.
