Greetings Peacemakers,

I hope you are well.

Restorative Justice and Societal Change Series
We plan to host 4 sessions on RJ & Societal Change, a new series for August, Wednesday evenings, 7-8:30pm ET

Theme: Large social and legal changes have produced a great deal of ripple effects in people’s lives. How do we process and respond to harms that we consider to come from larger forces – legislative, from the courts, broader international or domestic forces, and/or others? How do we take steps in our personal lives? Do we see ourselves going further than the realm of the personal? Four sessions with different topics will explore this theme with an RJ circle.

In addition: as this is a new series exploring the intersection of personal RJ and transformative justice, we value feedback and input from any individuals interested in this subject. If anyone has questions or ideas of what would help them process the theme of RJ & Societal Change, do not hesitate to email Angela at
