Unitarian Universalist Fellowship program
YELLOW SPRINGS — The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Yellow Springs will present “Restorative Justice: What’s the Big Fuss?” beginning 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 14. It seems that “Restorative Justice” (RJ) is making headlines many places as an alternative to dispute resolution.
Come to learn about RJ — its history, how and where applied, and its possible use in day-to-day life. Speaker Jennifer Berman is an Antioch graduate who works as the special assistant to the president in restorative practices and community life at Antioch now. She is also helping the Village learn and apply RJ where appropriate.
Choir practice is slated for 9:45 a.m. Snacks and conversation will take place after the program beginning at 11:45. It will be followed by an executive board meeting beginning at noon with the first 15 minutes reserved for congragational input and concerns.
