I just wanted to share this story that I heard on NPR today.  I think it helps our conversation about why restorative justice and why now. 

Even the Attorney General is looking for alternatives.

RJ offers a cost savings approach while requiring accountability, not to mention it increases the satisfaction that the impacted parties fee.

The Merrimack Valley Sandbox crew is a dedicated, problem-solving and caring group of people to work with. Despite technical difficulties, they were able to find a way to help me virtually participate in class today. It is because of their commitment to the Entrepreneurs that we are successful.

Thank you Sandbox (and Brad)!
