Over the past decade, there has been a rise in Restorative Justice throughout the nation’s criminal justice and education systems prompted by the stark race and gender disparities in suspension and exclusion rates. This interactive session will review current Restorative Justice research, then engage in activities that will inform the creation, adoption, and implementation of Restorative Justice in districts and/or schools. Panelists will share their experience creating, adopting, and implementing Restorative Justice within their schools and district. Participants will consider questions such as: How do you define Restorative Justice? What policy tools do you have to create, adopt, and implement in your district (or school)? What policy tools do you need?

Through participant polling, discussion, table discussions, and planning, participants will distinguish between Restorative Justice and Restorative Practices. In addition, tables will discuss potential leverage points to create, adopt, and implement Restorative Justice policies in their districts and/or schools.
