Community Demands Restorative Justice in Schools

Students, teachers, staff, administrators, and concerned community members want to help speed up the slow implementation of Restorative Justice in San Diego schools. Members of Mid-City CAN's Peace Promotion Momentum Team (PPMT) made their case in front of the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) School Board meeting on May 24.

Team members requested that the community be allowed to view a draft of the Restorative Practices Implementation Plan the school district is currently writing. They want to be able to provide community feedback and input.

"Restorative justice cannot exist without the dedicated support and participation of community members," said Sandra Rodriguez, PPMT Organizer at Mid-City CAN.  

As part of the Restorative Pipeline to Success Campaign, PPMT is currently drafting a "School Climate Bill of Rights," which they hope to be able to develop in collaboration with San Diego Unified School District and other key partners.
