We hosted the Education Justice Alliance (EJA) at the Avila Center in Durham, North Carolina, for their recent retreat focused on restorative justice. EJA is a rapidly growing grassroots organization working on education justice. The director of our own Inclusive Economies Program, Fernando Martinez, consulted with a facilitator who specializes in restorative justice and conflict resolution, and was able to invite them to NC to offer their expertise.

The Education Justice Alliance is a group of concerned individuals in Wake County working for a reduction in the number of public school students pushed off the academic track through unfair suspensions, harsh discipline policies, and academic failure. EJA is a non-partisan grassroots group that participates in civic engagement efforts. You can learn more about them on their website here: www.ejanc.org

Our NC program intern, Grace May, also attended.
