Many folks don’t know what restorative justice is, why it’s important, how it works, its efficacy. Telling others about it, is an important part of what we do.
We share information with faith groups, students, donors, workers in the justice system and other folks who are interested and possibly wondering how they might be involved. Our efforts to inform are also expressed through our actions as we meet with prison inmates and with those outside of prisons (including offenders and survivors).
Micah’s outreach comes in different forms:
- We visit churches and speak to congregations.
- We engage students on campus.
- We hold classes about the history of restorative justice, its values, efforts (local and global), impacts and outcomes.
- We offer information in workshops for people who are interested in getting involved, either through our programs, or other efforts.
- We talk to donors and to the media.
- We provide opportunities for volunteers to learn through participation in various activities including sharing circles, CoSAs and prison visits.
Activities are underway at the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon) to introduce students to restorative justice and to the work that Micah does.
Students participate in programming and raise awareness among their peers.
