Today on Your Call: How does restorative justice work in California?

Sep 25, 2013

How does restorative justice work in California? On the next Your Call we’ll talk about programs in California’s prisons that bring victims and offenders of violent crimes together in dialogue. How do these programs work? And what can be gained from alternative methods of rehabilitation? We’ll learn more about restorative justice with members of the Insight Prison Project, a nonprofit that works inside San Quentin. What do you want to know about restorative justice? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on the next Your Call, with Holly Kernan, and you.
