Lehman College, CUNY

(please share with colleagues, youth, educator, families, community-based organizations, government agencies, elected officials, local community businesses)

**requested by March 28, 2018**

We invite you to submit a proposal to the Restorative Practices & Restorative Justice Conference at Lehman College!  This year’s conference will explore trauma and trauma-informed practices as related to current efforts to build restorative and transformative communities. We seek proposals that explore both the critical and the creative as we move into an unpredictable future.
We invite abstracts for oral papers, workshops, panels and round-tables which address one or more of the following questions:
1) How can trauma-informed schools and communities be aligned with restorative and transformative practices?
2) What approaches and protocols have been found to be effective in changing whole school cultures from being retributive to being restorative?
3) How can the expressive arts and mindfulness be implemented to support youth’s holistic development and healing from trauma?
4) How can implicit bias and prejudice be effectively addressed and the impact lessened?
5) What are issues that affect youth and how can these be addressed restoratively?
6) How can the social, emotional and academic development of youth be addressed in restorative schools and communities?
7) How can culturally responsive teaching support the building of restorative schools?
8) How can youth be supported and nurtured as restorative and transformative leaders?
9) How can parents be supported as restorative practitioners in schools and communities?
10) How can we build a grassroots restorative justice movement that includes the voices of all stakeholders?
11) What policy changes are needed to support and sustain the growth of restorative and transformative justice?
