Thank you for this. You’re speaking to the difference between individualism and a collective way of belonging as well— can we see these situations as systemic and collective instead of through an individualistic lens?
Fran Brokaw (she/ her)
01:26:10
Using a restorative justice lens, how would you hold accountable the people who attacked the Capitol?
Jennifer Rataj (she/her/hers)
01:27:18
If you raise your hand, please keep it raised until you have the opportunity to ask your question. We will take your questions and comments in order. Thank you!

how does equity enter into this, if at all? Does it matter that the outcome will vary depending on the victim?
Joe Perella
01:29:11
Bobby, Very thoughtful presentation. How would you suggest utilizing Restorative Justice principles for prosecution of drug dealers; particularly those who are motivated primarily by their own addictions rather than money.
Maria Lamson
01:30:39
Are you familiar with the Compassion Prison Project? Is this a similar idea, but by entering the prisons to offer emotional support for people already incarcerated? Maybe it will not be necessary in future if RJ becomes universal!
Chris Green
01:31:40
Bobby, what are some top shelf resources for you for further study in restorative/transformational justice?
Joanne Bernard
01:33:52
Are there other agencies, institutions, organizations where individuals should be educated to advance a transformation to more restorative justice?
Fran Brokaw (she/ her)
01:35:53
I appreciate your honesty!!
Eileen Lambert
01:37:10
How do we have reconciliation without some level of regret? That’s about the Capitol attack
Roger Arnold
01:37:32
Thanks for the summary, Lisa!
Donna Stamper
01:39:03
Judges are a very important piece to restorative justice and mental health courts. Is Vermont connecting with Judges as to training and education for how Judges can move more towards these alternative sentencing now rather than waiting until these law school students graduate and perhaps become judges themselves. The grassroots development of these courts needs to be supported from the top to really make change.
Jacqueline Fischer
01:40:48
There is a national organization called Braver Angels that is facilitating and encouraging engagement between people who disagree politically.
Lisa Sharp Grady

Excellent discussion, thank you! A plug for Court Diversion programs as well, including Valley Court Diversion Programs in White River Junction. We too are always looking for community volunteers to serve on our restorative panels.

Thank you, Bobby, and thank you for HDH for this series. The process of RJ is compassionate, rather than punitive; yes, with accountability and responsibility, aware of the systemic causes as well as individual.
