Restorative justice is an emerging alternative to the retributive justice or punishment model of the criminal justice system. Our discussion is lead by two women actively engaged in restorative justice work with communities and schools.

Harriet Whitman Lee has been a mediator, facilitator, trainer, and circle keeper for many years. She has served on law school faculties and taught academic courses at various levels. She has trained people in conflict resolution in a variety of contexts. She is on the Alameda County Restorative Justice Task Force. She is a volunteer on the SEEDS Restorative Justice Task Force. She is a volunteer in the Insight Prison Project Restorative JusticeĀ  Offender Victim Education Group Next Step Program.

Deborah Tuttelman practiced law in the criminal justice system for over twenty years, and currently is a mediator and arbitrator. She volunteers in the SEEDS Restorative Justice Program, and participates in the inmate run restorative justice roundtables at San Quentin.

Join us in a discussion of this vital and timely subject as it relates to our communities and schools, inspired by the recent attack on Albany High School students on the Ohlone Greenway.
