There is no charge for this event, but you are encouraged to bring a young adult book for a juvenile detention center donation.

Join keynote speaker Christopher Fitz for a morning of discovery about the principles and practices of restorative justice, along with breakout sessions addressing domestic violence, Healing Communities, Restorative Justice in Action, and a presentation about Diakon’s youth and young adult programs.

Christopher Fitz is the Executive Director of the Center for Community Peacemaking. The Center has been creating a culture of peace in Lancaster and beyond through restorative justice practices like:

  • Victim-Offender Conferencing brings together those harmed by crime with those who offended to “make things right.”
  • Making Peace offers youth and their parents an opportunity to practice healthy communication with their peers and each other.
  • Peacemaking Circles help to transform conflict.
