Pa’lante Restorative Justice: Building a Youth-led RJ Program From the Ground Up
A workshop with Pa'lante Restorative Justice, a youth-led transformative justice program at Holyoke High School that is working to build youth power and dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline. Geared toward K-12 educators and community-based organizations, morning session participants will experience being in circle and learn about Pa'lante's model. Those staying for the full day will have the opportunity to apply ideas to their own setting with the support and consultation of Pa'lante staff and student leaders.
Half Day: 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Full Day: 10:00 am - 3:30 pm
There is a sliding scale donation suggested for this event of $10-50 for a half day or $20-100 for a full day. All donations go directly to supporting Pa'lante's critical work to end the school to prison pipeline.
Space is limited and registration is required! Tickets available here.
Limit of 8 attendees per organization and no more than 3 adults per group.
The 2018 Feinberg Series theme is Another World Is Possible: Revolutionary Visions, Past and Present. Series events and initiatives will explore the radical imaginations of intellectuals, artists, political leaders, renegade thinkers, community organizers, and everyday people who have worked to make another world possible. All events are FREE and open to the public. The Feinberg Family Distinguished Lecture Series is offered every other academic year by the Department of History at UMass Amherst and made possible thanks to the generosity of UMass history department alumnus Kenneth R. Feinberg ’67 and associates.
Visit the Feinberg Series webpage for more information about the series.
