How do we teach restorative justice so that our entire community thrives? What does it mean to extend just mercy in ourselves, our families and our communities? Why are truth and reconciliation necessary goals for any racial democracy? This event is an invitation to apply a racial literacy framework to these questions. After screening the documentary "True Justice," a film about the work of Bryan Stevenson, participants will have opportunities to discuss themes presented in the film while learning more about various opportunities to work on equal justice initiatives happening in New Jersey.
This program will be led by Joy Barnes Johnson and Kerwin Webb.
Joy Barnes-Johnson (she/her/we) is a STEM and racial literacy educator in the Princeton Public Schools who is working with teams of educators around the nation to build frameworks for transformative education in schools and communities.
