Restorative Justice and Global Conflict facilitated by DC Peace Team

June 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

Join us for “Restorative Justice and Global Conflict” a workshop facilitated by DC Peace Team for the RESULTS volunteer network.

Restorative Justice, or “RJ,” is a philosophy and set of practices that engage the community in building relationships and repairing harm through inclusive dialogue, deep understanding, and shared power.

This session will be held as a space for attendees to openly share how global conflict is impacting how they show up, particularly as advocates. This space will NOT be an exchange for political or religious ideology, but rather a safe place for expression and how war in other areas of the world is affecting us respectively. The space will also allow for reflection on how we can utilize restorative processes as a means to move toward personal and global healing.

Register for the “Restorative Justice and Global Conflict” workshop here.

This session is provided by the DC Peace Team, which empowers ordinary civilians to increasingly serve their communities particularly as nonviolent peacekeepers, and by extension as peacemakers and peacebuilders. The DC Peace Team lives this mission by deploying unarmed civilian protection and accompaniment units, providing training in various nonviolent skills, and facilitating dialogues and restorative justice approaches.
