The 2017 spring conference of the Restorative Justice Collaborative of Houston was held on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at YES Prep North Central. The theme for this year's spring conference is Restorative Justice 360: A Year of Implementation. Following up on last year's theme of "Strengthening Our Communities," this year's conference will focus explicitly on restorative justice within the context of K-12 education.
We held one-hour sessions in three strands: RJ 101, Experienced, and our youth-focused Future strand. See the full presentation descriptions here!
