The Community Restorative Justice Project has been participating in this program with Berkeley Law students at San Quentin State Prison for the past several years. Students will attend restorative justice roundtables on a biweekly basis, and the roundtables are led and facilitated by the people incarcerated in the prison. Students will participate in these dialogues to learn more about the impact of incarceration and the potential of restorative justice. By engaging in this SLP, students will have the opportunity to explore an alternative to the retributive model of our criminal punishment system, and to witness the realities of the prison industrial complex. SLP members will also have the opportunity to engage with restorative justice practices on the Berkeley campus and in the broader local community. More information about the program can be found here: https://www.sqrestorativejustice.com.
Students are expected to commit up to three hours every other week and one hour in the alternate week. Total monthly commitment will be 8 to 10 hours.
