The 2nd Annual Restorative Justice Council Conference

 Registration is closed for this event
The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has brought into stark relief the altruism of many who work for essential services and the deep-rooted structural violence endured by many communities within our societies. Restorative justice principles and practices can play a significant role in making our ‘systems’ much more person-centred and a means of building resilient and stronger communities and families. Thus, the focus of the 2nd annual RJC conference is ‘Reform: Restore’.

REFORM:RESTORE

The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has brought into stark relief the altruism of many who work for essential services and the deep-rooted structural violence endured by many communities within our societies. Restorative justice principles and practices can play a significant role in making our ‘systems’ much more person-centred and a means of building resilient and stronger communities and families. Thus, the focus of the 2nd annual RJC conference is ‘Reform: Restore’.

We have an extremely exciting list of confirmed keynote speakers that are sure to stimulate debate and discussion in our effort to provide insight into how we might build stronger and more just societies together. Those confirmed so far include:
