Restorative Justice: RSVP

Violence is learned. Violence can be unlearned.
Resolve To Stop Violence.

Can violent offenders really learn to make things right?


1998

Arrested for assault, battery and hate crimes


"For years I was a skinhead, fought in gang wars, and preyed upon Jews, blacks, gays, and Mexicans..

I hated myself. I hated the world."


Violence is learned.  It can be unlearned. 



2002

Violence prevention advocate and public speaker


"I have learned to be accountable, stop my violence, and be a contributing member of my community. Being a speaker at Temple Sinai is part of the restoration process for me and those I've harmed."


-- Aaron, former RSVP Facilitator
