Join Rose Gordon and Zena Zumeta as they talk about what Restorative Justice and other Restorative processes are, how they work, why Restorative Justice is an effective intervention with youth who have engaged in violence and its impact on youth recidivism.

Rose Gordon has been facilitating Restorative Justice for youth for over a decade. Less than 5% of the hundreds of youth she’s worked with committed other acts of delinquency. Rose has facilitated Restorative Approaches trainings in New Mexico and Thailand. She views Restorative Approaches as a way of building peaceful communities and an “inoculation” against violence. She’s currently the Program Coordinator for the Taos County Juvenile Justice Continuum.
