ED311, Life Anew, and SaulPaul Productions are thrilled to announce our upcoming event, Be the Change: A Restorative Practices Community-Building Conference.
Be the Change will be held March 17-19 in Austin, Texas and is aimed at helping attendees learn how to build a restorative practices ecosystem throughout your community.
We talk a lot about the effectiveness and importance of restorative practices within schools. But we also need to consider how schools and students intersect with the broader communities around them and the importance of instilling cultures of restorative justice in a number of settings. A restorative ecosystem is developed with all of these parties interact with one another to create a culture of understanding, adaptation, and collaboration.
Be the Change will provide an integrated training on the concepts of restorative justice and restorative practices for educators, school administrators, faith leaders, community organizers, service providers and law enforcement officials.
Attendees will learn how to play their own unique part in the restorative ecosystem, who to partner with to further the goals of the restorative ecosystem, and how to develop those partnerships.
