Round Table on Restorative Justice in OaklandTuesday, September 20th, 2011 at 7:00 PM
On Tuesday, September 20th, PUEBLO will host a round table discussion on the restorative justice programs that are currently being implemented in Oakland. Join members of RJOY (Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth) and Sujatha Baliga J.D., Program Director, Community Justice Works to find out what programs are being implemented in Oakland, what challenges they face and how the community can pressure government officials to invest in this cost-effective and recidivism-reducing alternative to the traditional criminal justice approach. Alameda County Superior Court Judge Gail Bereola will also be with us; she directs the Alameda County Task Force on Restorative Justice. On hand will also be representatives from the Oakland Unified School District who are spearheading the restorative justice programs in Oakland schools.
