Restorative Listening Events are based on the principles of Restorative Justice which hold that those most impacted must be heard, acknowledged and an effort made to repair the harm for a community to be made whole again. Once the following questions are answered – what happened? Who was harmed? How were they harmed? How can the harm be repaired? – can a way to move forward be found.
You can also learn more about Gentrification Restorative Listening Events or download a flier.
