Campaign for Children’s Rights 2021 – Week 3

Rethinking our Response to Adolescent Behavior
Wednesday, March 17 from 5-6pm CST, Zoom panel discussion
Restorative justice is an effective alternative to prosecution that holds children accountable while also offering healing to not just the person who was harmed, but also the child who harmed them. We will explore what a restorative justice model could look like locally.


Troi Bechet, founder and CEO of the Center for Restorative Approaches

Sia Henry, Senior Program Specialist at Impact Justice’s Restorative Justice Project

Michaela O’Connor Bono, Program Associate at the Vera Institute of Justice

Deema Nagib, Senior Outreach Manager at Common Justice

Moderated by:

Rachel Gassert, LCCR Policy Director

Support This and Future Discussions

We’re aiming to raise $5,000 by the end of the Campaign to help support future discussions like this as well as the efforts of LCCR’s policy team to address the systemic racism that impacts Black children in the justice system every day. If you can, please consider chipping in $10 (or more!).
