FIND YOUR CENTER
A SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION SINCE 1889
Awakening the Spirit of Oneness in All
Join Althea Center for Engaged Spirituality on Sunday, Sept 19th at 10:30 am for our Sunday Gathering: "Healing the Community through Transformative Justice" with Guest Speaker, Peggy Evans!
RSVP is welcome, but not required.
Transformative Justice is the new direction for Restorative Justice (RJ)--moving RJ out of the criminal Justice world and into the community. Using the same principles, values and processes, Transformative Justice is bringing people together over issues that have divided our communities, whether it is racial issues, housing, education, economic issues.
Peggy Evans will be speaking about how this works and presenting key techniques that will make these conversations productive. She has a Transformative circle she wants to create...are you interested?
All are welcome to join and participate in this transformative gathering!
Guest Speaker: Peggy Evans
Peggy Evans has been mediating family, workplace, community cases and facilitating Restorative Justice Practices since 1992. Formerly, the Director of FACE-to-FACE Mediation Services, a community mediation and restorative justice program, serving Colorado’s 18th Judicial District.
Peggy is grounded in facilitative, interest-based and restorative mediation styles. To this day, the violent crime dialogues are Peggy’s favorite kind of work. The positive “ripple” effect of these interactions ripples far beyond the individuals participating in the victim offender process.
Peggy had a 2013 legislative appointment to the Colorado Restorative Justice Council and was a member at large for the Probation Advisory Committee (2008-2016). She is certified as a Collaborative, Facilitative and Interest-Based Mediator by Phoenix. Strategies, Inc. Peggy is the President of FACE to FACE Restorative Practices, was the Training Director for the Restorative Mediation Project and has contracted with the Colorado Department of Youth Corrections and SB94 organizations. She continues a contract with the United States Postal Service Redress program since 1997 and Colorado’s Office of Dispute Resolution (ODR).
Peggy has studied various communication and community building techniques and works to expand the implementation of restorative, value-based programs to create a healthier, more civil society.
