    Restorative Justice in Schools Research Meeting: International Institute for Restorative Practices

    Keith Hickman, the Director of Continuing Education for the International Institute for Restorative Practices (IIRP), will be joining us via a conference call to speak about the IIRP;s work and how to successfully implement restorative practices in schools.

    The IIRP has worked to implement restorative practices in schools across the country through their SaferSanerSchools program. Here's a recently-released research briefing on this program; after two years of study, researchers found that restorative practices were successful in reducing suspensions. 

     

    Logistical information for the call will be sent out in advance via email.

    Downtown Lawrence: MLK Restorative Justice Discussions

    In the area of civil rights, we have made much progress, AND we have much work still to do. Consider these two key issues that disproportionately affect people of color in our community: 
    • Proposed Jail Expansion: Douglas County Commissioners are poised to use tax dollars to fund a massive jail expansion without understanding why our jail population has exploded.
    • Counter-Productive Disciplinary Practices in Schools: Out-of-school suspensions lead to a higher risk of dropping out, which leads to higher chances of incarceration. 
    Justice Matters is hosting a series of discussions about restorative justice to commemorate the Martin Luther King holiday. We invite anyone with a passion for justice to join us in making Lawrence, KS a restorative community. We hope to see you there!
