The Yolo County District Attorney’s Multi-Cultural Community Council announces the fourth in its series of forums designed to foster understanding and appreciation of local culture and the criminal justice system. The forum, which will examine restorative justice and the new Neighborhood Court, will run from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at the West Sacramento Library, 1212 Merkley Ave. in West Sacramento.

Presenter Lisa Rea is one of the pillars of the restorative justice movement with more than 30 years’ experience as a consultant in victims-driven restorative justice and founder and president of Restorative Justice International. Rea will discuss the results of restorative justice for the victims, offenders and community members.

Restorative justice brings together those who are harmed. The victims, offenders and their affected communities then search for solutions that promote repair, reconciliation and the rebuilding of relationships. To participate, the offenders must take responsibility for the harm of their actions by apologizing, replacing stolen money or giving community service.

A Neighborhood Court using the restorative justice principles has been operating with success in Davis, and another such court is being proposed for low-level offenders in West Sacramento. Interested community members are invited to sign up to train as panelists and facilitators.

For more information, email Christopher Bulkeley at Christopher.Bulkeley@yolocounty.org.
