Relevant Religion w/ Graham Reside: Restoring Justice
In this workshop we will discuss the history and practice of restorative justice, paying particular attention to its religious and cultural roots.
Crime and violence are inevitable elements of any society. How we deal with these human realities is up to us. And by almost any account our current justice system has failed both those who commit crimes and those who are its victims. Leaders need to think creatively about new possibilities.
One alternative is the restorative justice approach. Rather than seek retribution, restorative justice seeks reconciliation and restoration of both offenders and the offended. In this workshop we will discuss the history and practice of restorative justice, paying particular attention to its religious and cultural roots. We will listen to the voices of those who have been in the justice system, as well as those who have experienced the restorative justice model, and we will discuss the potential of Restorative Justice to foster a deeper form of justice, and a more hopeful future. Come join us in this conversation about Criminal Justice in the United States, and Restorative Justice as a path forward.
