RIT hosted the sixth annual Western New York Restorative Justice Conference Oct. 6-7. The conference consisted of breakout sessions and panel discussions featuring leaders from organizations using restorative justice practices within the courts, classrooms and other community venues. Sessions also provided training on how to use these processes in agreement with the criminal justice system with a focus on saving costs and providing restitution and closure that can ultimately promote healing and build healthy communities. This keynote address featured, from right, Monroe County Court Judge Vicki Argento, Derek Miodownik, a conflict resolution and community justice expert, and David Soares, Albany County District Attorney, presenting “Making Systemic Change With Restorative Practices.”
