Powell House will host a weekend-long RestorativePractices/Restorative Justice workshop for educators to engage in hands-on experiences with RP/RJ circles. The weekend will also allow participants to consider how our intersectional identities, and our beliefs and values (spiritual and otherwise) provide us with the lens through which we engage with this work.

Old Chatham, NY 12136
