RJ World 2020 was a 17-day (extended 7 days) online showcase of more than 100 inspiring presenters from around the world – facilitators / practitioners / teachers / researchers / artists – who are passionate about sharing insights and ideas in the realm of restorative justice and restorative practices in all sectors.

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 was an event for workers, volunteers, and those interested anywhere in the Restorative/Transformative Justice/Justice fields. It drew 100 presenters from 20 c0untries, 700 registrants from 50 countries.

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!

Kairos means a highly significant historical moment. We are in one this year (2020), given:

— a worldwide pandemic

— worldwide anti-racism protests

— an attempted coup by U.S. President Trump–that affects the entire world.
