I am so happy to be telling our story of the last two years. With our small team and youth interns we've done a surprising amount of work.
I have been fortunate to find partners who are committed to this work. Since the founding the National Center for Restorative Justice we have been able to train tons of teachers, we have amazing youth interns, and have launched the first NW RJ Youth Conference. In addition to many other achievements.
There are a couple announcements we will make during our event as well. At the end of last year I was able to found the Restorative Justice Foundation. This is the first announcement and invitation to support the funding of Restorative Justice in the region.
Finally, you will have a opportunity to hear from Garth Reeves and Scott Canfield, who are starting Cascade Schools (Charter). The National Center for Restorative Justice will be partnering with them to support the implementation of RJ and see them through the opening of a new opportunity for the youth in the region.
You'll be treated to wine and heavy hors d'oeuvre... and amazing company. If the weather is nice, we'll be on the roof so dress approapratly.
