Restorative Justice (Part 2 of 2): The Importance of Community-held Programs
To be sustainable and meaningful, restorative justice approaches must be born in and held by community – not “brought” to a community. This webinar will explore how, in order to be held by community, restorative justice processes designed to address harm have to function fully outside of the juvenile and criminal legal systems. The speakers will discuss how people can create spaces and build upon their inherent wisdom and ability to address harm that happens within their own communities and how system partners can best support these efforts. The presenters will also touch upon ways communities can create, nourish, and deepen relationships needed to implement and sustain restorative justice practices despite the limitations presented by COVID-19.

Panelists:
- Venus D. Johnson, Chief Assistant District Attorney @ Contra Costa County
- Tanisha “Wakumi” Douglas, MSW, Co-Founder, Executive Director, Senior Trainer @ S.O.U.L. Sisters
- Sandra Rodriguez, Senior Program Specialist @ Impact Justice, Restorative Justice Program
- Erica Washington, Senior Program Associate @Impact Justice, Restorative Justice Program
