In Detroit, neighbors are coming together to prevent and heal conflict and violence that has persisted for generations. They are becoming active stewards of their community and building better relationships. People in this city want their children to be safe in the community and successful in school. By learning the skills of restorative practices, they are making this dream a reality.
Strengthening the Spirit of Community is the first IIRP World Conference in Detroit. Local community members, education, justice, social service and health practitioners and researchers will join those from around the world to share successes and challenges. Together, we will collaborate on a rich learning experience to make a better city and a better world.
