Restorative Justice Town Hall TONIGHT August 19

Subject: Restorative Justice Townhall August 19th @ 6pm: What Can Restorative Justice Do For Our Communities???

EPIC cordially invites young people and communities of color to join us at the Restorative Justice Town hall on August 19th. The current system is broken. Come on out to build around what Restorative Justice really means, where it comes from, and what it can do for our communities.

This event is co-sponsored by Ending Prison Industrial Complex (EPIC) and Rainier Beach Action Coalition (RBAC). The Townhall will take place at Urban Impact in Rainier Beach, 7728 Rainier Ave. S. Doors open at 5:30 and the program will start at 6:00 p.m. Emcees for this event will be Saroeum Phoung of Center for Ethical Leadership and Senait Brown from EPIC and Blackout WA. Presenters will include Angola Dixon, Dominique Davis of the Diversion 180 Program, Gregory Davis of Rainier Beach Action Coalition, and Afam Ayika of Real Change and EPIC.

Attatched is
  • A clip of Dominique Davis talking about "Diversion 180", an Alternative to Detention model (Dominique will be one of the speakers at town hall and available to answer questions about the program he runs)
  • A flyer and article about the Restorative Justice Townhall on 8/19.
  • A news story and an article from the August 6th NAACP/EPIC No New Youth Jail press conference.
We need more community led prevention and alternative to detention programs, not New Youth Jails.
For more information call James Williams at (253)883-9548.
