2022 RJ2: A Training Series on the Intersectionality of
Restorative Justice Practices and Racial Justice Series Dates Coming Soon!


Waking Up to Whiteness in Restorative Justice
Presented by Dr. Robyn Short

This training covered how to support white people in deepening their understanding of racial inequities, biases, and the role white supremacy plays in the oppression of all communities of color. As restorative justice practitioners, we are called to deepen and broaden our personal awareness in order to reduce racial harm perpetuated in RJ practices and create intentionally inclusive and welcoming RJ spaces.

SESSION 2 Anti-Oppression Practice and Transformative Justice
Presented by Regan Byrd

How do we solve the roots of harmful oppressive systems like racism, sexism, homophobia, and cissexism? How does one (or an organization) act in allyship towards the marginalized communities targeted by these systems? How do these very systems of oppression and dehumanization show up in our attempts to practice restorative and transformative justice? What vision of the world are we trying to build?

SESSION 3 Addressing The First Harm: What Is It?
Presented by Edward C. Valandra, Waŋbli Wapȟáha Hokšíla; & Brett Lee Shelton

The dialogue between two Indigenous leaders, was exchanged about settler colonialism and restorative justice with restorative practices practitioners addressing T he First Harm—stolen Native land. An understanding of the roles people play in maintaining settler colonialism is a necessary step in becoming authentic allies to Indigenous Peoples and working towards justice—Undoing The First Harm.

SESSION 4 Motus Theater’s JustUs: Stories from the Frontlines of the Criminal Justice System
MotusMonologists: Dereck Bell, Daniel Guillory, Juaquin Mobley and Brandon Wainright
