Join us at KPU to celebrate Restorative Justice Week by attending this free event, where we will hear two remarkable stories.

Margot Van Sluytman, whose father was murdered, is coming from Toronto. Margot is a respected speaker, advisor, and social justice advocate. She teaches and inspires audiences about how to be liberated from fear, anger, resentment, and hatred.

The person responsible for the harm, Glen Flett, spent twenty-three years in prison. Paroled in 1992, Glen is the founder and co-facilitator of L.I.N.C. (Long-term Inmates Now in the Community), an organization based in Mission, BC that assists long-term prisoners in reintegrating to life on the outside.

Glen and Margot will share their stories and accept questions and feedback from the audience. The event will be moderated by Alana Abramson, a long-time facilitator and practitioner of restorative justice, and instructor in Criminology, KPU.

Everyone is welcome! There is no cost for this event. Register today via the online link or by email: simon.beck@kpu.ca.

Restorative Justice Week takes place during the third week of November. It began in Canada in the 1990s, and has now grown to be an international phenomenon. Nationally, there are events that take place to increase awareness of the philosophy and practices of restorative justice. KPU will hold its first event this year, which will bring people together to acknowledge and celebrate the work of restorative justice here and beyond.
