Introduction to Restorative Justice in Schools
through Resolutions Northwest

Explore why and how Restorative Justice can be a promising alternative to exclusionary practices.

Monday and Tuesday, June 26th and 27th, from 9:00am – 4:00pm

“It was a great balance of circle, lecture, group work and movement. The topic had me 100% engaged.”

Restorative Justice is a valuable alternative to exclusionary practices. It seeks to restore community and repair harm while holding all involved accountable. Unacceptably high school push-out rates disproportionately affect students of color, students with disabilities and youth who identify as LGBT.

Restorative Justice is not a prescribed program but a philosophy based on community building and repairing harm. We will discuss the components that can make the approach successful such as circles, restorative inquiries and dialogues, community service and mediation. We look at possibilities for implementation that are open to classroom teachers and other school personnel. While doing so we will keep a keen eye on equity issues. The workshop will be a combination of lecture, discussions, videos and hands-on practice activities.

This training focuses on Restorative Justice in schools. We particularly invite and encourage school counselors, behavior specialists, administrators, teachers, security personnel, and those studying to work in schools.

Fight, flee, flop – or flip? Transform conflict through Aikido
Two Rivers Aikikai

Put the experience of mindful conflict resolution into your body!

When conflicts arise – perhaps racism comes up, a co-worker pushes our buttons, or we’re embroiled in family dynamics – most of us have a default setting, and it’s not necessarily the most helpful one. In this workshop, we will explore how to become more mindful in those moments so we can choose a response that is more aligned with our values and the outcomes we want to achieve. We will include physical exercises to help you access a deeper level of learning.

Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art with the ultimate goal of convincing humanity that violence is not an effective means of improving society. While this is not a martial arts class, it is grounded in our belief that the lessons of Aikido can help people develop a centered, balanced and sensitive human spirit.

No martial arts experience is required. We work with participants to adapt each exercise to your own level of mobility and comfort (or you can learn by observing if you prefer).

Institutional Equity: Tools and Frameworks for Leaders

People of any level of experience are welcome. The training will be highly interactive and will invite each of us to move through challenges and discomfort toward engagement, connection, and action.

Restorative Practices (Family Workshops) by DSC PPU RNW
through Resolutions Northwest

One of the events in our DSC Dignity In Schools Week of Actions Events. https://simplysheilas.wixsite.com/2017weekofaction

Peace Center Coordinator/Trainer at Community Organizing and Family Issues (COFI) In Chicago Illinois... Karen Lynn Morton The Trainer http://www.klmortonenterprises.com/restorative-justice.html

We love this woman. Please join us and allow her to love you up!.

Hi Everyone I am Karen Lynn Morton (call me Lynn) I am passionate about helping women and girls especially become all they desire to be. I am also dedicated to helping school adminstrators and teachers create a restorative atmosphere that will help students excell and teachers love their jobs again.

Restorative Justice Definitions Restorative Justice (RJ) is a philosophy that is focused on the belief that those affected by harm can work together to repair it and that a collective effort leads to true accountability. Restorative Justice Practices are structured differently from systems we are used to in that they allow for a safe space for people to express their vulnerabilities, strengths, challenges and accomplishments. As a result, the process humanizes all those involved and promotes deeper bonds, a sense of responsibility and healing for all involved – offender, victim, anyone else affected by the crime/offensive action

Restorative Justice in Schools Restorative Justice is a set of practices and values that holistically prevents and repairs harm, builds community and relationships resulting in a positive, supportive school climate.

Interrupting Racism Actionshop - advance registration
Mercy Corps, 45 SW Ankeny

Registration required: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/interrupting-racism-6/


Imagine a world where when racism arises we take action.

Racism is all around us. It lives in the DNA of every system and institution in the United States, and here in Portland. This Actionshop is focused on interpersonal racism, within the context of systemic and institutional oppression. We will explore the way racism arises in our everyday interactions, and offer tools and practice for interrupting racism.

We’ll provide a historically and contextually grounded space to talk deeply about racism and the evolution of Racial Codes. But we won’t stop there! Simply talking about racism is not enough to dismantle the power structures that uphold the racial order. At the same time, creating systemic change requires interrupting the learned and daily behaviors that reinforce racism to move toward building healthy communities.

A note from the trainers: For many Black and Brown people in our community, nothing has changed. For others, especially for many white people, the last Presidential election and events such as the May 26 white-supremacist attack here in Portland have increased their motivation to find out what they can do. The Interrupting Racism Actionshop is not a response to these specific events. This is not a training in self-defense or nonviolent resistance. We will continue to focus the training, as we always have, on internal, interpersonal, organization, and systemic racism and the work we need to do as individuals to change these systems.
