Restorative Justice Storytelling, Collaboration, and Celebration

Have you, your child, or someone you know participated in youth/peer courts or restorative circles through the Dane County TimeBank, YWCA Madison, or Briarpatch Youth Services rather than going to municipal court? What did you think? We want to hear from you. Come talk about your experience as a respondent, juror, parent, or community helper. Let's learn and grow together.  #neighborshelpingneighbors

Dane County TimeBank, YWCA of Madison, and Briarpatch Youth Services present...

Share Your Story: A community gathering for restorative justice

Saturday, May 20th – 1 to 3 pm
Art In – 1444 E. Washington Ave.
The Dane County TimeBank, YWCA, and Briarpatch Youth Services work in collaboration to provide all youth between the ages of 12-16, who receive a municipal ticket in the city of Madison, the opportunity to handle the incident outside of the traditional system. Instead of going to municipal court, the youth may choose to participate in a community based restorative justice peer/youth court or circle process. When youth successfully complete their agreement, the ticket does not get issued and nothing appears on their record about the incident.

Please join us for an afternoon of food, community, and celebration.  Plus a chance to share your experience. Come to learn more about the initiative and the organizations involved. This event is for all participating youth, their families and supports, participating adults, and community members interested in learning more.
