3 NY Credits: 3 Skills; 3 NJ Credits: 3 General

Join NYCLA's Criminal Justice Sectionand our experienced trainers as they provide an experience-based understanding of the foundational components of Restorative Justice, which seeks to create the structure and space for persons from various backgrounds to discover and activate their ability to work together toward their own well-being.

Participants will experience a unique storytelling based circle process and then discuss the potential for this framework of connectives to help them navigate conflict. The experiential training workshop is engaging, lively, and informative. Participants experience firsthand how circles realign power dynamics among and within us, how storytelling creates vulnerability and empathic listening, and how this model is a new paradigm for Restorative Justice.

The Goal of the program is for participants to gain insights into an alternative dispute resolution model for themselves, their clients, and their communities.

Spring Fundraiser 2017

Join us for a fundraiser at Joes Pub featuring Stephanie McKay & The Call

The Restorative Center is a grassroots organization with a focus on creating the structure and space for communities to activate their ability to work together toward their own well-being. With roots in Newburgh, N.Y. and the Bronx, TRC explores non-hierarchal structures and the basic concept of storytelling to invite people to be together in new ways. Shailly Agnihotri, an attorney with 20 years of experience, founded TRC with the intention of creating a social foundation for building alternatives to the traditional adversarial approach to conflict resolution. We envision a future in which the majority of issues currently routed through the criminal justice system and family court are resolved by the communities in which those issues arise.
