Responding to Violence and Conflict
A Restorative Justice Approach
Facilitator: David Kelly, C.PP.S.
Restorative justice embraces the values and principle of faith communities. Drawing from his years of work with youth and families in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood, David will explore violence and trauma, and how restorative justice enables a community to respond to the harm done.
