CCASA Restorative Justice (RJ) to Address Sexual Violence Project Application (2021-2022)
'CCASA Restorative Justice (RJ) to Address Sexual Violence Project Application
The Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault is excited to announce our Restorative Justice to Address Sexual Violence Project. The goal of our project is to support four communities across Colorado to plan and work toward implementing a community specific RJ project. Participants will learn about RJ frameworks and practices, explore needs within their community, plan a RJ project and work toward implementation. Selected groups will participate in educational sessions, work groups, and have the opportunity for consultation with RJ experts.
Each group must commit to at least one representative at 3 educational sessions and 3 work groups. The project will culminate in two presentations on the community specific project. Applicants for this program must show a commitment to addressing sexual violence within their community. Each cohort will be expected to fully take part in the entire program through June 2022. The project includes:
● 3 educational meetings between November 2021 and April 2022
● 3 work sessions between November 2021 and April 2022
● Project presentations to the RJ group and larger community.
● One on one consultation time with restorative justice experts as needed.
This project will take place virtually.
