Air Date:
Heard On University Of The Air

Restorative justice seeks to heal the harm done to victims and to help offenders take responsibility for their actions in a transformative way that benefits the community. Three guests explore how they are using this approach in Wisconsin prisons: the Reverend Jerry Hancock, former Deputy District Attorney and now Director of the Prison Ministry Project; Jerome Dillard, former incarcerated individual who has spent decades working to help prisoners successfully reenter society; and former WPR distinguished broadcaster and host Jean Feraca, who has in her retirement passionately embraced Restorative Justice as a volunteer.
