ACR-GNY is proud to co-sponsor the Restorative Justice Initiative for a Conversation with Marina Catacuzino, the Founder of The Forgiveness Project

The Forgiveness Project is an award-winning, secular organization based in London that collects and shares real stories of forgiveness to build understanding, encourage reflection and enable people to reconcile with the pain and move forward from the trauma in their own lives.

Marina will discuss The Forgiveness Project's program, RESTORE, which aims to reduce the number of people harmed by crime through the rehabilitation of people that have committed crimes. Aimed at adults and young people over 15 years of age, it is an intensive, group based intervention that encourages people behind bars to explore concepts of forgiveness and reparation in a framework that fosters greater accountability and responsibility. 

Marina will also discuss her research into jail and prison-based RJ programs here in the U.S. and Canada and she will share her perspective on the relationship between restorative justice and forgiveness.

This event is also co-sponsored by the CUNY Dispute Resolution Center.
