Broken Voices: Restorative Justice & Justice-Involved Youth

This session explores how restorative justice processes are being used in Davidson County, TN to help court-involved youth unpack their own trauma and adverse childhood experience. Participants will explore themes of harm and trauma and understand the difference between the two. They will gain a picture of harm as a transient dynamic that passes through people in a community. Participants will wrestle with identifying the varying needs that arise when harm is inflicted on a person, especially a child. We will discuss justice and how it relates to harm, exploring the need for processes that give people a way to articulate and pursue their demands for justice in a way that does not cause more harm. A Q/A will accompany this session.
