I was awarded “Activist of the Month” by the League of Education Voters on the 8th of Nov, 2013. This is a great honor and opportunity to continue this work. It truly is a good time to be working in school discipline. There is a national ground swell of work, research, and schools changing.
To complement this award, I am starting the Restorative Justice Center of the Northwest. This has been something I have wanted to do, and others have encouraged me to pursue. There will be another announce meant when thing are finalized for the Center. I hope this work reflects RJ work across fields and truly provides opportunities to engage the NW (Washington, Oregon, and Idaho).
