Restorative Justice Initiative's next community-building Circle for school-based restorative practitioners will convene on Wednesday, July 18 from 5:00PM-7:00PM at 505 Eighth Avenue (Manhattan), Room 12A. If you're in the process of bringing a restorative culture shift to your school--whether you're just getting started or you're a veteran--this Circle is for you. Whether you're a classroom teacher, a dean, a school counselor, or a student; and whether you're in a public school, a charter school or an independent school, please join us and help spread the word.
The Circle is facilitated by rotating Circle-keepers. It's a space to meet and learn from fellow RJ/RP/TJ practitioners in schools throughout the city to offer and receive support, to process the day-to-day challenges, celebrate the successes, and build capacity to advocate for change. Students and school staff are welcome.
Each Circle is focused on a particular topic, theme or question.* This month we'll continue our discussion of teen dating violence and gender-based violence in schools. Please come prepared to share your questions and experiences.
Please RSVP here.
Circles will be held on the third Wednesday of each month. Upcoming dates include: 8/15, 9/19, 10/17, 11/14 and 12/19. Please mark your calendars!
*You can suggest future topics via our short, online survey.
