The first event to recognize Restorative Justice Week is on Saturday, November 16th, 2019. NPJS and Cornerstone Yoga have joined together from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM to provide a Restorative Yoga session and Talking Circle, which is open to anyone to participate by donation.

The theme for this year’s week is titled ‘Diverse Perspectives’ as the Society recognizes that crime and conflict impact more than just the victim and the person who caused harm, but instead has a broader impact on the community that those in conflict live in.

According to NPJS, they recognize that citizens and communities have a responsibility to those who have been harmed within their communities in prevention and support in the aftermath of a crime.
