The Victim Offender Mediation Association (VOMA) and the Practitioners Research Scholarship Institute (PRASI) established a Restorative Justice and Anti-Racism Training initiative to provide an interactive learning experience that reflects “best practices” in engaging restorative justice
practitioners to effectively conduct antiracism work. Collaborators on the project included Barbara Raye, VOMA administrator; Drew Smith former VOMA board member; S.Y. Bowland, PRASI consultant; Hassan Batts, NAFCM board member
and myself, a 2002-03 PRASI Fellow. (excerpt)
