….Baliga, who directs the Restorative Justice Project at the National Council on Crime and Delinquency, and Zehr are joining forces on Jan, 30, 4:30-6 p.m. in U.S. Eastern Standard Time, to hold a webinar about this case with restorative justice practitioners around the world. The registration fee for participants is $10. (Registration will open at 5 p.m. Mon., Jan. 14, with a limit of 100 registrants. On Monday, check this posting at the emu.edu/cjp for a link to the registration page.)
They will be exploring: How did this case unfold? What can restorative justice practitioners learn from this pioneering case? What is the relationship between forgiveness and restorative justice? How do we relate to the media on these issues?
Viewers will be able to submit comments and questions through a chat forum. The event is the first official one of the newly formed Zehr Institute for Restorative Justice.
Zehr says the webinar is intended for restorative justice practitioners but is open to anyone, though a basic knowledge of restorative justice is preferred. For those without that background, The Little Book of Restorative Justice by Zehr can provide a basic understanding.
