Saturday, Apr 18, 2015, 2:00 pm

Come hear testimonies of marginalized communities in Brazil, Burundi and elsewhere in the Global South where restorative justice practices have brought healing and peace to victims and perpetrators of violence.  Learn from practitioners in Brazil on the positive impact of restorative justice practice for inmates, victims and their families.  Also, hear how a community can be successfully rebuilt, socially and economically, after a conflict through the documentary “Life after conflict in Burundi: Socio-economics and trauma healing.”
