Restorative Justice Staff Development Retreat

This 3 day retreat will engage participant through three primary focuses: conversations, group development and restorative practices. The conversation element seeks to develop participants’ capacity to be more present to what it will take to engage, serve and co-create effective actions relevant to the lives of those whom they serve. The group development is experiential learning using a variety of exercises that assist participants in gaining the ability to speak openly and honestly, to grow and understand something about themselves and behaviors as a group. And lastly, The restorative practices aids in shifting individual and collective response to violence, conflict and trauma by developing participants capacity for responding  with more empathy in  restoring relationships and repairing harm.. These frames are integrated in a synergistic and organic way as learning, practice and self-evaluation are combined through continually “Creating Community Conversations for Connections”.

Parent Workshop

CRIMINALIZATION OF A COMMUNITY - Part 3

The concentration of poverty, violence and other structural and systemic causes targets people who are economically poor and have experienced long term traumatic events.  The people who are impacted by structural and systemic violence many times are blamed for the conditions that they live in. The society and its history creates and supports perceptions of who is criminalized and its impact on the quality of life and education that people of color and economically poor white people receive in the U.S. The School to Prison Pipeline is now being acknowledged and linked to the ways in which the educational system has morphed in its' mission to equalize the playing field in the economic and social landscape of America

This Parent engagement workshop will provide us with an opportunity to view a video panel discussion together and identify if this matters to us.  and what is possible in our learning and acting together to address the issues raised about our children.

This video can support our initiating a conversation and creating actions to engage the whole school community in creating a conversation for connection and change.
