    A Restorative Justice Association in Manitoba: A Stakeholders’ Meeting

    9:30am – 2:00pm
    (lunch and refreshments will be provided)
    RSVP: by April 7, 2015


    Last November, an inaugural meeting was held to begin the process of forming a restorative justice association for Manitoba. Represented at the meeting were community, faith and social justice organizations, the Winnipeg Police Service, RCMP, Manitoba Justice and many unaffiliated community members all of whom are aware of the transformative potential of restorative justice and so have a vested interest in promoting it.

    A pilot committee was formed to ensure the next steps identified at that meeting were followed up on. Two of these were to do more outreach as everyone recognized that key stakeholders were not present at that meeting and to set up a larger meeting at a later date.

    This larger meeting will allow the pilot committee to report back on it activities but the goals will be:
    Envision what this association would look like
    Determine next steps

    Please circulate this to anyone you think may be interested. The pdf poster is attached.
