Full Circle: Reclaiming and Reconnecting to Our Restorative Practices


  • Columbia School of Social Work 1255 Amsterdam Avenue New York, NY, 10027 United States (map)

The Center for Justice at Columbia University will host a three-day training for those who identify as people of color to collectively explore restorative/transformative justice and circle practice and philosophy.

Friday, November 9 to Sunday, November 11
9:30AM to 5:00PM
Columbia School of Social Work
1255 Amsterdam Avenue
New York, 10027

This experience is an invitation to reconnect with our indigenous roots, our ethnic identities, and our cultural practices. How do we ensure that restorative action is always in alignment with racial justice? How do we reclaim circle keeping as a cultural tool as well as an abolitionist stance? How can we embody transformations away from punishment as transformations away from white supremacy too? This training will give tools and information, but it will also be highly experiential. All levels of experience with RJ are welcome, but this is an opportunity specifically for people that identify as people of color, that work predominantly in spaces with people of color.

The cost to attend is $250, and very limited scholarships are available.
