Here are some bits of news and action items on the Community Peace Building & Justice (PB&J) front. (that's a bit of a joke but makes for nice shorthand). All the notes from previous sessions are here: https://miro.com/app/board/uXjVOEvslNI=/

We'd like to gather a supergroup again to touch base on what people are doing and what's needed, to help us all gain a clearer and somewhat-shared bigger picture of what's happening county-wide. Please fill in this scheduling poll: https://doodle.com/meeting/participate/id/bY63KR9d

And keep working toward appropriate/mission-aligned sub-groups of practitioners:

People working in restorative justice - please share any materials you have and are willing/able to share about your process i.e. flow chart of referral process and administration thereof, RJ and follow-up processes, etc. (you can bring to a future meeting or share here whenever you're ready - https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1jlKd6u48I48wOJlRoh_ka99GNWUZoH1W?usp=sharing)

Last meeting we decided it would be fun and helpful to host a gathering in the Fall, of any interested current or former participants in restorative/community justice efforts. An aim would be to do more deliberate leadership development among participants, and also to host a space for their knowledge-sharing and relationship building. What do you think? Do you have people you'd like to invite?

We need to build on existing training capacity and also build trainer training and peer leadership, peace-building, de-escalation capacity. Some of us will line up a thorough training, please let us know if you want to participate or have suggestions for the training itself.

We need better, more consistent, shared evaluation.

Would you like to have a monthly gathering to share and build on our resources? If so what's the best time slot? Lunchtime or late afternoon? Which weekday? We can use this scheduling poll (same as above) or please reply if you don’t see any options there that work for you. https://doodle.com/meeting/participate/id/bY63KR9d

Thanks much,
