Restorative Justice Workshops
We regularly conduct workshops to explore and have conversations about Restorative Justice and the possibility of alternative ways to address and end sexual harm and relationship violence.
Restorative Justice is an non-adversarial approach to addressing offensive behaviour that seeks to identify and repair harm and rebuild trust through facilitated dialogue. When harm happens, unmet needs are created. Justice is best understood as meeting the needs of persons and communities who experience and/or did harm toward the purpose of healing.
Passionate about having conversations to raise awareness and address relationship violence? We invite you to join us to discover how to peacefully end violence using a restorative approach. This in-person workshop will be conducted over one day and it will be experiential!
Stay tuned for dates of our workshops!

The facilitators do a great job at creating and enforcing a safe space for all members who come with different experiences, capacities, and perspectives. It was a highly engaging session that got me to reflect on things I never thought about before through highly interesting activities.
