November 19, 2010 Restorative Circles Conference

MADISON, Overview of Restorative Circles on November 19-21, 2010 in Madison, WI. Restorative Circles support people in dealing with conflict and harmful acts, most effectively as part of a Restorative System. Developed by Dominic Barter and inspired by both Nonviolent Communication and the principles of Restorative Justice, the process can improve relationships and enhance the safety and well-being of our community. By participating, you can:
• Learn more about why this practice is spreading rapidly – from Brazil to Europe, the US, and Africa – and how it is already been used in Dane County.
• Consider ways a Restorative System might benefit your family, neighborhood, work setting, faith community, or local justice system.
• Experience the effectiveness of this three stage process yourself.
• Explore and expand your ideas about conflict, power, and possibility.
• Find out about joining us in creating Restorative Systems.

Part of the philosophy of Restorative Circles is that anyone can have access to the process and everyone has the chance to be heard. We want to hear and include your voice as we move forward. You may work in the fields of criminal justice or law enforcement, social work, education, business, community organizing, or youth services (or not). You may already be familiar with Restorative Justice (or not). You may long for options for transforming conflict in organizations you belong to. You may have witnessed or been affected by a harmful action or crime. You may simply care about your community. Whatever your role in life, we trust that this may be of interest, and we would value your participation.
