By Sandy . . . April 6 and 7, One Standard of Justice is hosting a conference focused on the concept of restorative justice as a means of healing for everyone impacted by sexual crime — former victims and former perpetrators, as well as those in the lives of both.

The program includes presentations from some of the most prominent names in the criminal justice/sexual offense research community, including Dr. Jill Levenson and Dr. Alissa Ackerman. Keynote speaker Philip Kaso, NARSOL board member and supporter, shares his own personal story of recovery, compassion, and love.

Cindy Prizio, OSJ’s ED, says, “I am eternally grateful for learning and exploring the absolute fact that there can be another way. The carceral way can be replaced by the principles and practice of restorative justice. This conference is bridging the gap between “us and them” and recognizing that we are all human beings who have suffered trauma to differing degrees.
