Making the Case for Restorative Justice: Innovations and Applications

Come hear a talk by Justice Janine Geske.

Texas is prime for the use of evidence-based restorative justice programs to reduce racial disproportionality in school discipline, prioritize victim needs, and obtain better outcomes for low-level offenders, including students, who otherwise get caught up in costly judicial and administrative proceedings. Join Justice Janine Geske as she speaks about recently passed legislation in Colorado and her moving experiences in creating opportunities for increased victim satisfaction, greater public safety, and substantial cost-savings to traditional correctional sanctions.
