RJA, an independently produced Chicago Access Cable Network TV Show, hosted by Judge Sophia H. Hall, highlights the work of members of the City Wide Restorative Justice Committee of Greater Chicago, exemplifying a new consciousness of “best practices” in the various modalities of restorative justice, reflecting a Chicago culture building peace, nonviolence and social justice, cooperation and restoration of harms.
Restorative Justice in Action website will allow the viewer to navigate from the picture of one of the Restorative Justice in Action Cable Show guests, including an inviting quotation, to a 1 – 2 minute video clip of courageous and educated practices: alternative approaches to a seemingly deteriorating society. Video clips – present capsulized stories – speaking to the restoring of harm in households, schools, neighborhoods and communities. From these selected clips the viewer can move to another window where they will be given information needed to contact the offices of the individuals highlighted and other web resources.
RJA also provides valuable informational links to resources within the society of Restorative Justice Practices.
