Restorative Justice: An Alternative
This will be a short course for 3 weeks on the roots, application, and benefits of restorative justice as an alternative to punishment in our criminal justice system. The focus of restorative justice is on the harm done, how the victim can be healed, and how the offender can repair the harm to the victim and community. Carolyn Madden has an MA in Philosophy, Graduate Center, N.Y. and JD from Wayne State University. She was the Associate Director and lecturer for the English Language Institute and is a member of Friends of Restorative Justice of Washtenaw County. Kathie Gourlay has an MBA from the University of Michigan, currently teaches at Washtenaw Community College, and is passionately interested in criminal justice reform. She finds restorative justice to be an improved way to respond to criminal acts, as compared to the standard American retributive approach. NO CLASS ON FEBRUARY 27, MARCH 6, OR MARCH 13.
