Six people, including formerly incarcerated men and women who have successfully reintegrated back into society, will share their firsthand experiences with the criminal justice system at a special event on Saturday, June 11.
The event, “Restoring Humanity: A Speaker Showcase on Restorative Reintegration,” will be from 2 to 4 p.m. at Warren Auditorium, in the Mother Rosalie Hill Hall, at the University of San Diego and will be live-streamed.
Each participant will speak for about 10 minutes. Some were paroled after decades behind bars, and at least half had originally received life sentences. The seventh speaker will provide a family member’s perspective; her husband, also a speaker, and two brothers have been in prison.
San Diego Auxiliary Bishop Ramón Bejarano, who heads the San Diego Diocese’s social justice efforts, will lead the opening prayer and offer brief comments.
In addition to the diocese, these organizations are co-sponsoring this event: the Center for Restorative Justice at the University of San Diego, the National Center for Restorative Justice and Amplify Voices.
