About this event
At the Reimagining Justice in West Virginia virtual conference, you’ll hear from seasoned practitioners and restorative justice newcomers alike as we consider what justice is and what it requires of us. You’ll be inspired and better prepared to apply the values and concepts of restorative justice, and you’ll make new and lasting connections so that, together, we can create more safe, just, and equitable communities across West Virginia.
