The Florida Restorative Justice Association is excited to announce our biennial conference, Creating Florida's 2020 Restorative Vision. Join us as we bring together restorative justice practitioners, academics, advocates, and public servants for community, learning, and planning a more restorative Florida. The conference will be held at the St Benedict's Episcopal Church in Plantation, Florida, on Friday, January 31st from 6:30-9 PM and Saturday, February 1st from 9 AM- 6 PM. For a small additional cost, there will be a 4-hour RJ training opportunity during the afternoon on Friday, January 31st. Friday evening includes a dinner and welcome reception. Saturday, February 1st includes a full day of presentations, workshops, and working group sessions, including breakfast and lunch.
 
We are inviting presentation proposals to be submitted by October 31, 2019. We anticipate sending out notifications of acceptance by approximately November 30, 2019. 
FRJA is particularly interested in exploring the ways in which restorative approaches can address systemic injustice. We request that your presentation proposal specifically consider how systemic oppression is considered and transformed by the restorative work that you do.

We are also particularly interested in the following topics for proposals:
  • -Fundamentals of restorative justice and restorative practices 
  • -Restorative justice as an emerging social justice movement 
  • -Strengthening collaboration within restorative practices and various systems (education, criminal justice, neighborhood, social work, law enforcement, child welfare)
  • -Expanding the use of restorative practices in underserved communities 
  • -Exploring racial and historical injustices and trauma 
  • -Bridging research and practice in the field 

This list is not exhaustive - if you have another idea that does not fit into one of these categories, please submit it anyway! 

Please bear in mind that only a limited number of proposals will be accepted due to time and space constraints. 

We envision presentation sessions to last between 60 and 90 minutes.  These may be workshops, panel presentations, or another format. We will be asking for handouts relating to your presentation before the conference and these handouts will be shared online.  

NOTE: All conference participants will cover their registration and conference expenses, whether selected for presentation or not. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
