Description:

The BBA presents live webinars and virtual events via Zoom. Please register for this program through your BBA account at least two hours before the start time of the program to receive the Zoom webinar link. 

This is the fourth session of a multi-part program designed for anyone interested in learning more about restorative justice. This session will feature Tavon Robinson, an “offender” who went through the D. Mass. restorative justice program after being convicted on a federal drug charge, and his attorney, Jessica Hedges.

They will present an “offender’s” perspective on restorative justice.  Mr. Robinson will discuss the path that led him to restorative justice, the benefits and challenges for an offender of engaging in a restorative justice process, and why he is now an avid supporter of the program. Ms. Hedges will discuss the efforts being made to expand the use of restorative justice in the District of Massachusetts court.
