Wisconsin Restorative Justice Summit
A free, virtual forum on advancing equitable restorative justice and peacemaking practices to transform youth services, programs and communities in Wisconsin
The Restorative Justice Summit, a free, virtual event held by the UW–Madison Division of Extension, is a statewide educational forum that brings together young people and youth-serving professionals to collaborate in advancing equitable, evidence-based restorative justice and peacemaking practices that aim to transform youth services, programs and communities in Wisconsin.
Speakers and breakout presenters from across the state and country will include Cecelia Rose LaPointe, who will present the keynote on "Racial Justice in Anishinaabe Aki."
Cecelia is Ojibway/Métis and is Mashkiziibi (Bad River Band of Lake Superior Ojibway or LaPointe Band of Ojibway) and Kchiwiikwedong (Keweenaw Bay Indian Community). They are enrolled in Mashkiziibi and maintain a strong community affiliation to Kchiwiikwedong. Cecelia is also the Founder and Executive Director of the Native Justice Coalition.
The Restorative Justice Summit is made possible in part by grants from the Wisconsin Law Foundation and the University of Wisconsin–Madison Division of Extension Innovative grants program.
