ABOUT THIS ONLINE WORKSHOP
In this workshop, educators and school staff will expand their learning on non-punitive justice practices in order to build a more inclusive, equitable learning environment for queer and trans students. We will discuss how to build on the restorative justice practices that are helpful in navigating interpersonal conflicts between students by introducing transformative justice practices specifically for queer and trans students. Participants will learn how to identify, address, and take action to improve school practices, policies, and systems that could be creating inequities, deficits, and barriers for queer and trans students. This will be an informative virtual intensive that will include many opportunities for discussion and action planning.
