BIG NEWS! Restorative Collective Vancouver came to a consensus to work toward becoming a Restorative City!
Restorative Collective is creating a relational, holistic, decolonizing approach to conflict, harm, healing, justice and peace.
Councillor Michael Wiebe put forward a motion to City Council in support of these aspirations. The motion will be discussed and voted on January 26. Send good vibes please!
"Vancouver, like many cities, faces multiple crises. We desperately require a different way forward." - Dr. Evelyn Zellerer
The Collective is an impressive team of diverse voices and wisdom with representatives from Indigenous-led organizations, service providers including for survivors/victims, youth and seniors, LGBTQ2S+, Vancouver Police Department, BC Community Corrections, Vancouver Board of Parks & Recreation, City Council, business safety committee and more! Peace of the Circle is proud to be the coordinator with who they affectionately call the dream team!
You can show support by sharing social media posts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn) and raising awareness about restorative justice. You can also reach out to Mayor and Council here, and click here for contact information for each Councillor.
