YWCA Madison will host Reclaiming Our Humanity: A Talk with Fania Davis on Thursday, Nov. 8, 10 a.m.-noon at the Overture Center for the Arts, 201 State St.
Fania Davis is a leading national voice on restorative justice, a quickly emerging field which invites a fundamental shift in the way we think about and do justice. Restorative Justice is based on the desired set of principles and practices to mediate conflict, strengthen the community, and repair harm. She is a long-time social justice activist, Civil Rights trial attorney, restorative justice practitioner, writer, and scholar with a Ph.D. in Indigenous Knowledge.
In the United States, the school-to-prison pipeline (SPP), also known as the school-to-prison link or the schoolhouse-to-jailhouse track, is the disproportionate tendency of minors and young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds to become incarcerated, because of increasingly harsh school and municipal policies.
