The presentation will also focus on the way it is being used in Oakland’s schools and juvenile justice system to interrupt racialized mass incarceration and the school-to-prison pipeline.

There will be a panel discussion featuring Dr. Davis and Mr. John Wetzel, Secretary of the PA Department of Corrections.

Dr. Fania E. Davis is a leading national voice on restorative justice. She is a long-time social justice activist, civil rights trial attorney, restorative justice practitioner, writer, professor, and scholar with a PhD in Indigenous Knowledge.
