‘Restorative Justice’ Strategy to be Used in Marin City


A meeting on implementing restorative justice in Marin City will be held Monday Sept. 16, 6 p.m.- 7:30 p.m. at the Hannah Gallery, 170 Donahue St., Marin City

Restorative justice is based on the idea that victims, offenders and the community need to repair and restore its relationships. Restorative Justice is a process that promotes and supports principles and practices that enable these restorations.


One of the goals of this Marin City project is to inform and educate community residents, organization staff, and advocates to understand and implement restorative justice principles.

The public is invited to the meeting, which will discuss how to implement this process in Marin City.

Speakers will include Dr. Ruth Bissell, MA in Educational Leadership from UC Berkeley and PhD in Anthropology. She is an Assistant Principal at Terra Linda High School and an education consultant for the Museum of the African Diaspora in SF. She will discuss Restorative Practices: Connecting new disciplinary strategies to Old African traditions.

The other speaker will be Rita Alfred, who consults with and trains school district personnel, school site staff, students and parents in the Bay Area in the use of Restorative Justice practices and Peacemaking Circles processes. She will discuss how to use peace-making circles for community building and to solve conflict.

Dinner will be provided. RSVP to Juanita Edwards at (415) 871-1499 or e-mail [email protected]
