The Spirit of Innovation: Models for Breaking New Ground in Old Places

Speakers: Jin S. Kim, Nathan Yoder

Five years ago, a group of Anabaptist Christians committed to peace and justice launched the Reedley Peace Building Initiative (RPBI). RPBI is a collective strategy engaging the local police department, school district, and trained volunteers committed to using restorative justice principles to create a more peaceful, healthy and just community. This workshop will describe how the Spirit is using this program to restore relationships between victims and juvenile offenders, preventing offenders from committing further crimes, and promoting community involvement in a way that is transforming the this community.
