The theme for the night will be JUSTICE FOR ALL … Healing and Restoring Our Community. The program will feature a fireside chat among special guests who will be honored for Making the World a More Just Place.
You won’t want to miss our 60th anniversary celebration in Seattle on July 20th. It’s the third of six such gatherings taking place from coast to coast in 2023.
Please join us in dialogue with members of our community who can speak to the promise and challenges of finding and restoring justice. Panelists include Professor Thalia González, Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Center for Racial & Economic Justice, who has written extensively about restorative justice; Jimmy Hung, the King County Juvenile Division Chief Deputy Prosecutor, who has worked directly with restorative justice practices in the criminal legal system; Saroeum Phoung, a skilled peacemaking circle keeper, teacher, and spirit leader; and Washington State Representative and founding Director of Civil Survival Tarra Simmons, who has lived experience as a formerly-incarcerated individual who later earned her juris doctor and now works to help individuals reentering the community from incarceration navigate their civil legal needs.
