Restorative Justice Workshop with Dr. Kim Cook
August 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for an evening of conversation about restorative justice
A fundraiser in support of Leslie Cohen for New Hanover County Commission
We are at a pivotal moment in our history as a nation. Difficult conversations are happening all over the country about the future of law enforcement, criminal justice, and public safety. A nexus of recent events culminating with murder of George Floyd has focused our attention on the institutional racism and implicit bias in every aspect of public policy. I believe we have an obligation to seize this moment, this opportunity, to address the inadequacies of our current models of justice, public safety, education, and equality. We have a chance to create new systems based on fairness, equity, and opportunity for all. Is this wildly aspirational? Perhaps. But there have been people working toward these goals for years. Their efforts have shown incredible promise.
This is an incredible opportunity to learn from community expert Dr. Kim Cook, a Professor of Sociology and Criminology at UNCW and chair of the Board of Directors for LINC, Inc.. In 2015, Dr. Cook resumed working as a restorative justice facilitator in New Hanover County, including in Juvenile Court, public schools, and local non-profit organizations. She has helped to organize and facilitate restorative justice training for New Hanover County Schools and has helped to build capacity in many schools throughout the district.
