Restorative Justice Education: Building Relationships, Disrupting Inequity & Addressing Opportunity Gaps

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join Dr. Zwicky and Alexis Goffe for an amazing professional development experience and learn how to leverage restorative practices to develop positive relationships, build an inclusive and respectful school climate and culture, and address opportunity gaps.  Schools are, at the root, disadvantageous to our youth of color. This workshop is designed to enable participants to experience a restorative process and discuss how what they experience can help us better understand ways to build equitable spaces for youth of color in schools.

Your event space has been curated using the Zoom video conference app.  To access the breakout session meeting room, please use the link above or alternatively, use this Meeting ID: 958 5304 3418
