Advancing Justice Through Restorative Networks!

Terri, We hope you’ll join us for our first full day session.

On October 24th we’ll spend a full day together thinking about the relationship between Networks, Justice, and White Supremacy. We’ll read Tema Okun’s article about White Supremacy Culture and explore our own relationships to the culture, the impact it has on networks, the impact networks have on the culture, and antidotes we can embrace to help restore our networks to more generative cultural conditions.
