WN: David Milgaard recruited me to co-present with him at this online Conference. (David spent 23 years in prison in Canada for a murder he did not commit.)
The Conference is an event for workers, volunteers, and those interested anywhere in the Restorative/Transformative Justice/Justice fields. It draws presenters from all over the world.

Please also see below a brief video to be part of a collage of farewells from presenters at the eConference. It will be shown August 31, 2020.
That little novel mediation program (Victim Offender Reconciliation Project–VORP–was first dubbed a “Project” due to its initial experimental nature) in response to crime mentioned–begun in Kitchener 1975, of which I became second Director in 1977–significantly helped put Restorative Justice on the World Map! It’s been a personal great journey ever since!
Finally: below is the 19-minute video of all 11 farewells. Very powerful!
