Conference on Restorative Justice in Wisconsin will take close look at victim forgiveness

Staci Strobl

If a drunk driver killed your daughter and her friend, would you be able to forgive him or her?  Renee Napier has done just this after Eric Smallridge forever changed the course of her life by irresponsibly taking the wheel while under the influence of alcohol.  Renee and Eric are the keynote speakers at the upcoming 3rd Annual Restorative Justice Conference at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.  They will share their journey to healing, and ultimately a place of forgiveness, on March 7, 2016.

This annual conference brings together mediators, dispute resolvers, and others practicing under the broad label of restorative justice, a type of response to crime that focuses on the harm done to victims and directly addresses those harms in alternative ways than those found in the mainstream criminal justice system.  Bringing together academics, practitioners, criminal justice authorities, counselors, and members of the community, among others, this conference utilizes peacemaking methods such as facilitated 'circle time' to discuss the keynote and other presentations from restorative justice experts.  For more information, and to register, click here.
