7th NACRJ Conference in Denver!

Denver NACRJ COnference LogoThe 7th NACRJ Conference in Denver is upon us! We have already maxed out our attendance at 1500, but we hope to find ways to share the wealth of offerings to all NACRJ members throughout the summer.

Highlights of the conference include:

Opening address: Colorado’s Governor Jared Polis will welcome everyone on Friday, sharing about the increasing acceptance of restorative practices within justice systems, education and communities across Colorado.

Motus Theatre: On Saturday, in a theater piece called Restorative Stories, formerly incarcerated leaders will share their stories of justice system involvement and the impact on their lives as law enforcement leaders join them on stage for the reading.

The Flobots: A free evening concert Friday, provided by one of the most popular rock and hip-hop bands based in Denver.

Interview: In honor of Howard Zehr, Sheryl Wilson will share a video interview and reflection on the past, present and future of restorative justice practices.

Key note addresses from Adam Foss, Christina Swarns, Edward Valandra, Jasmyn Story and Juana Bordas and entertainment from Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble and Playback Theater West promise to inspire us all.
