The California Bishops are working very hard on bringing more restorative rather than punitive policies into our state's corrections system. In particular they are advocating support for AB 2590. Assembly Member Shirley N. Weber hosted a public briefing on restorative justice programs and best practices on Wednesday, April 13, in Sacramento. Restorative Justice experts spoke about programs that help address the victims’ harm and needs, while holding offenders accountable and helping them to right those harms. This briefing included important information on how AB2590 would add important restorative justice practices to California's criminal justice system.
Time: 10:00am – 11:30am
