NARSOL’s CT affiliate hosts restorative justice webinar

Connecticut’s One Standard of Justice is hosting a webinar on the topic of restorative justice. Titled “A Different Approach to Sex Crimes: The Case for Survivor-Centered Restorative Justice,” the webinar will air January 25 starting at 7 p.m. eastern time until 8:30 p.m.

Webinar presenters are Alissa Ackerman, Ph.D., Lara Bazelon, Seema Gajwani, and Nuri Nusrat. The program is moderated  by Danielle Cooper, Ph.D., CPP.

Restorative justice is a process which provides not only accountability from those who have caused harm but also offers healing to all the parties involved. It is embraced by many as offering what is so sadly lacking in the criminal justice system today.

The webinar offers insight to those in many different fields, including faith based organizations, therapeutic communities, dispute resolution centers, youth/young adult advocates, sexual offense registry personnel, reentry workers, judicial and court support services, criminal defense attorneys, public defenders, state attorneys, attorneys general, the law enforcement community, criminal justice reform advocates in general,  survivors of harm who don’t believe the current system is taking care of their needs, and just anyone who feels the current system has flaws or who wants more information about the restorative justice process.

NARSOL takes great pride in what is being done in Connecticut by One Standard of Justice. This organization stands as a beacon in the New England area for the work that NARSOL does.
