Restorative Practices: Community circles for conflict resolution
Restorative justice practices for co-op conflict resolution, community building, and general meetings.
We will go over restorative practice basics and how it can be applied to community-building and/or help conflict resolution in our co-ops. We will hold a circle about "trust" or "leadership" to practice what we just learned. Everyone should be ready to participate in a seated circle. Time allowing, partners will be able to have a restorative conversation with another to figure out how to repair harm for all parties. Discussion and questions to follow.
Translation can be by participants bringing a friend to translate in the circle for them, or we can pair people with the same language together to help each other throughout the circle. I can translate for Spanish speakers if needed.
