On June 19-21, 2013, nearly 500 leading international academics, practitioners, and activists in the fields of restorative and racial justice will travel to Toledo, Ohio, for an important historic event – the Fourth National Restorative Justice Conference. As co-hosts and sponsors, Lourdes University and The University of Toledo Foundation are proud and excited to be part of this relevant and important event.
The conference opens on Juneteenth, a holiday recognized by 42 states including Ohio. Juneteenth was established to commemorate the historical date of June 19, 1865, when slavery ended in the U.S. In the spirit of Juneteenth, the theme of the conference is “Keeping It Real – Race & Restorative Justice.” Presenters and attendees will explore restorative justice’s potential to heal and transform both historical harm and present-day inequities in justice systems, schools, and diverse communities.
