Southern California RJ Consortium
The Southern California RJ Consortium brings advocates and practitioners from higher education institutions, K12 school districts, community organizations, practitioners, and advocates together quarterly to:
- Collaborate on scholarship and lessons learned to build efficacy by creating a strong network of Restorative Practices (RP) educators, advocates, and practitioners
- Educate future generations of RP leaders for scholarship, practice, and implementation by increasing support for Restorative Practices in educational institutions
- Research education and implementation processes to establish and disseminate lessons learned in the region
- Create a regional model that can be replicated nationwide
Special thanks to the anonymous donor that helped launch the Southern California Restorative Practices Consortium with a generous grant to the CURes Restorative Justice (RJ) Project in 2020.
