Metro's CSS Hosts Summer Restorative Practices and Racial Justice Series

Metro Center's Center for Strategic Solutions (CSS) will host a Summer Restorative Practices and Racial Justice Series facilitated by CSS Equity Coaches, Erin Dunlevy and Cathleen Antoine-Abiala. This training series is designed to support school-based staff and community members in the process of implementing restorative practices to intentionally disrupt and dismantle institutional racism in schools. The series will explore the ways in which restorative justice practices can either uphold or dismantle racial gaps in academics and discipline in schools. The series will also address how circles, as well as the central practice of a restorative model, can function as a culturally responsive teaching strategy and community management model that de-centers whiteness and values the culturally authentic narrative of every community stakeholder.
