National Conference on Restorative Justice

Justice Conference events free to public

KERRVILLE – Schreiner University will be host to the first National Conference on Restorative Justice, June 23-27, and a number of the conference events will be free to the public.

Among the free events will be a concert Tuesday, June 26, by David LaMotte, the North Carolina singer-songwriter who has performed at venues all over the U.S., including The Kerrville Folk Festival.

Those who want to attend other conference events can register for them on an individual, day-by-day basis for a pro-rated fee. The registration table will be located at the entrance to the Cailloux Campus Activity Center on the Schreiner campus throughout the conference.

Restorative justice is a multidisciplinary approach to mending or putting right harm caused by criminal behavior, and deals with such topics as victim-offender dialogue, domestic violence, juvenile offenders and community crime prevention. The conference will feature national and international leaders from areas such as law, education, criminal justice and faith communities.

The Schreiner University Moot Court Society will be selling sterling silver doves pins/charms for $24 at the conference to raise money for the society. The dove was designed especially for the conference by Jim Morris, a Kerrville artist.
