On Tuesday December 18th, host Cynthia Lin interviewed a panel of guests regarding the YWCA’s Restorative Justice Program. She spoke with Restorative Justice Program Manager Ananda Mirilli, Eugenia Highland and Danielle Bailey. According to Madison’s YWCA website, “Restorative justice is a theory or set of beliefs that informs how communities can resolve problems that have caused harm or damaged relationships. Restorative justice prioritizes accountability and community healing over punishment, shifting the focus from what rules were broken and what punishment is deserved to what harm was done and what needs to be done to repair the harm.” The YWCA employs restorative justice “as a strategy to address the School-to-Prison Pipeline. The School-to-Prison Pipeline is a process by which students are removed from the school for disciplinary infractions. These students are often put on a path to the criminal justice system. The racial disparities in school discipline directly correlate with the racial disparities in the criminal justice system. We use restorative justice to provide alternative discipline models in schools to keep students in school and out of the justice system.” Read more about the YWCA’s Restorative Justice Program: http://www.ywcamadison.org/site/c.cuIWLiO0JqI8E/b.7968327/k.F427/Restorative_Justice.htm Listen to the whole interview: more »
