In this final episode of season 1, we talk about our experiences participating in restorative justice sessions. Restorative justice is a framework under which many possibilities exist. Alissa began participating in restorative justice sessions with men and women mandated to treatment after the commission of a sexual offense. This work has continued and we both participate in theses sessions now. We also talk about the kinds of cases Alissa now facilitates in the community. We discuss a program that Alexa has been integral in forming at a prison in Northern California.
Restorative justice has been an integral part of our individual healing and in the way we navigate our work. We created our entire podcast season building up to this episode and we could not be more proud.
Here is a link to Alissa’s TEDx Talk, where she discusses her experiences with restorative justice.
