7 pm Restorative Justice Panel Discussion

Look at alternatives to incarceration at our panel discussion

Restorative Justice Panel Discussion: The national Episcopal Church charged each parish around the country to study Michelle Alexander's book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. After 6 weeks of study and discussion, we turn our attention to possible alternatives to incarceration. Regardless of your participation in the book study, we invite you (as well as the wider Missoula community) to attend a panel discussion about restorative justice. Hear from local leaders and officials about what restorative justice is, how it is supposed to work, and its potential viability within Missoula. Be a part of this community-wide conversation. Join us in the parish hall on Wednesday, November 1, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for this important discussion.

Be a part of the conversation as we explore potential community-wide alternatives to facilitate healing, growth, and restoration. Learn about the weaknesses and biases of our current system. (If you’ve been reading The New Jim Crow book by Michelle Alexander, check the premises of it against local experience.) Join these panelists as they share their varied experience and expertise about our criminal justice system. Our panelists include:

  • Missoula County Justice of the Peace Judge Landee Holloway
  • Defense Attorney John Smith
  • Managing Attorney of the Tribal Defenders Office for the CSKT Ann Sherwood
  • Missoula Correctional Services Community Service Coordinator Todd Mclean
  • Mediator and Author Norm Lavery
  • Returning Citizen (hear an inside perspective on the criminal justice system)
