Restorative Justice Training Circle

RJCR Talking Circle

The Second Chance and Violence Prevention subcommittee hosted a Restorative Justice training circle in partnership with Life Anew and Huston-Tillotson University. AISD staff, APD officers, students, and community members participated in this two-day training to increase awareness and understanding around the use of restorative justice circles.  Participants also engaged in discussions and activities aimed at improving their interpersonal skills when in conflictual encounters. The hope is to expand the use of these practices across schools and juvenile justice settings to provide youth with preventative programming and second-chance opportunities.
