Perspectives: Restorative Justice

Jan 10, 2019

The idea behind restorative justice is not just forgiving those who have wronged you and forging a positive relationship with them.  More fundamentally, it’s a comprehensive approach to life and human interaction that produces more positive outcomes.  To talk about the concept in all its ramifications are: Agnes Furey, author of “Wildflowers in the Medium”, with her story prominently featured in the documentary, “Another Justice;” Kate Grosmaire, who, with her husband, Andy, also is featured in the documentary; Betty Serow, a leader in Good Shepherd Catholic Church’s work in restorative justice; Dan Kahn, Executive Director of the Florida Restorative Justice Association; and Peter Butzin, a leader in the United Church in Tallahassee’s work in restorative justice.
