Webinar Series – Responding to Events of Racism in School-Based Relationships: Topics in Educational Equity
Series overview: Our work in schools is fundamentally relational. The ways we treat each other create an environment that is either empowering and connecting, or marginalising and oppressive. This series focuses on anti-racism within school-based relationships: how we treat each other in unmonitored social spaces, the words we say to each other, and the ways we resolve our conflicts. Through activities, case studies, and discussion/reflection, we learn what harms and what heals educational relationships.
Webinar 3 – Racial and Restorative Justice: Considerations for Circle Keepers
with Ann Hite, M.Ed.
In order to fully honor the Indigenous origins of Restorative Justice (RJ), practitioners must focus on balancing the interpersonal work of strengthening community and repairing relationships with the pursuit of systems change. We cannot forget that the struggle for racial justice is inherent in the practice of RJ. This webinar focuses on how Circle keepers can carry this mindset at the forefront of their daily work in schools and communities. Some background in restorative practices is suggested.
