The new season of our podcast – Whatchu Know About RJ? – will officially launch this week!
Hosted and organized by Gilbert Salazar, Training Coordinator – Innovations Department, the podcast features interviews and storytelling from Restorative Justice practitioners to highlight the interdisciplinary spectrum of RJ facilitation and theory.
What do you know about restorative culture at school? This season we will be hearing from some of our school partners whom CCEJ has supported with training and coaching as they bring Restorative Justice practices to life. Kicking off our first episode is Kim Plaza, Assistant Principal of Student Supports, at Camino Nuevo Burlington, a charter school in Los Angeles, CA. Our conversation with Kim explores what a Restorative culture is, how it needs to be nurtured and sustained, and how it can provide strength in unsteady times. Kim also shares insight into the ways a Restorative culture affects students’ understanding of accountability over time and staff retention and trust.
