Join us for deeply moving stories of high-risk restorative justice practices. Howard Zehr returns as the keynote speaker focusing on shame (Thursday) and high-risk victim offender conferencing (Friday).
This year we collaborated with the Colorado Department of Corrections to provide victims of crime the unprecedented opportunity to meet face to face through restorative justice dialog with those that harmed them.
Sharletta Evans, whose 3 year old was killed in a drive by shooting, will be joining Howard on Friday morning to discuss restorative justice and high risk victim/offender conferencing. Sharletta is the first victim to meet with her son’s killer in the Colorado Dept. of Corrections.
