This year’s event centers around “Calling the Circle for Restorative Justice,” and looks at how restorative circles are used to build and restore relationships through equal opportunity, sharing and listening, and by providing every individual the opportunity to speak and be heard.

Multiple workshops and other sessions will also be offered on topics related to restorative practices and initiatives, compassionate listening, using data to promote equity, fostering a recovery friendly region, impacts of climate change on vulnerable populations and examining racism from public health and historical perspectives. The annual Linda Gabriel Awards will also be announced, recognizing youth, individuals and organizations in Kitsap County who have made significant contributions to human rights.
