As education moves online and everything feels increasingly uncertain, the Restorative Justice Partnership (RJP) is offering this webinar as a point of connection for our community and reminder of what's most important in times of crisis - our relationships with one another. During this webinar we will focus our attention on the possible traumas our young people are experiencing at home and how they may show up in remote learning, discuss ways to assess needs and maintain relationships with students online, and acknowledge the disproportionate impact this crisis is having on communities of color, so we can properly address, and not exacerbate existing disparities.

For this webinar, we will be joined by Marcy Leonard and Erika Strauss Chavarria, a principal and teacher from Howard County Public School System's Wilde Lake High School, who are ensuring that restorative justice and the well being of their students remains central to online education. RJP's Project Manager Lindsay Lee, LCSW, will provide an overview on trauma and tools to address it, and introduce a new resource designed to invite students to share their experiences during this difficult time.

Please note, this webinar will not include instructions on keeping circles online.
