Community RJ Hub Information Session

Come learn about what it means to be a Community Restorative Justice Hub!

We have scheduled our next information session on the 13th of July, 2017 between 10am – 12pm at Austin Coming Together, 5049 W Harrison St, Chicago. Please contact Bryan Echols if you have any questions. Bryan can be reached at bryan.echols@gmail.com

Restorative Justice Hubs are a community-led approach to youth crime and conflict. Our vision is that RJ Hubs are safe spaces in the community where youth and their families are welcomed and supported in building healthy relationships, expressing themselves, addressing trauma, and developing necessary skills and competencies.  Importantly, the RJ Hub model is directly informed by the latest science on childhood trauma. It is designed as a strategy for helping people to move beyond the effects of adverse childhood experiences, guiding them towards sustainable healing and growth.

This information session will discuss what it means for an organization to be a Community RJ Hub and what the process looks like for interested organizations to become a hub and join the documentation and evaluation process, and the learning community that meets regularly to share best practices and guide the movement to decriminalize our youth.

Free and open to all interested organizations
