What is Racial Healing?
“Racial healing is a process we can undertake as individuals, in communities and across society as a whole. In healing, we recognize our common humanity, acknowledge the truth of past wrongs and build the authentic relationships capable of transforming communities and shifting our national discourse. Many organizations are taking up this essential work. . . . All of us can learn how to promote racial healing and contribute to building the equitable society our children deserve.”
~La June Montgomery Tabron, President, and CEO – W.K. Kellogg Foundation
New podcast explores restorative community
The Metta Center for NonViolence invited Restorative Resources director Susan Kinder to talk about our program on their latest podcast. Listen below, as Susan points out how restorative justice is really about us “being human together.”
Relying on suspensions and zero-tolerance discipline doesn’t deter misbehavior in schools–in fact, it makes matters worse. Teacher Jean Klasovsky shares Farragut High School’s story, a model for how schools can improve climate and discipline by using restorative justice practices such as peace circles and peer juries. Such practices lead to reduced dropout rates and greater student achievement.
