The featured episode from "The Restorative Lens Podcast" hosts LTomay Douglas and Allana Ojibway speak with Edward Valandra,  Waŋbli Wapȟáha Hokšíla, who is both an author and editor for Colorizing Restorative Justice. His chapter, “Undoing the First Harm: Settlers in Restorative Justice,” gives voice to the need for settlers to recognize the ways that restorative justice too often fails to address the first harm: which is the theft and continued occupancy of Indigenous land. Through honesty and education, Edward sheds light on the contradicting relationship between RJ practitioners instilling restorative practices/values, while at the same time failing to acknowledge or take accountability for ways that settlers continue to benefit from the stolen land. He discusses practical ways that educators and practitioners can take action and bring dialogue of the First Harm into restorative spaces.Follow their podcast on:Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-restorative-lens/id1588436493Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3KZ97jnssXPfnMSwvFLeJYand check out the work of the National Center on Restorative Justice at https://www.vermontlaw.edu/academics/centers-and-programs/national-center-on-restorative-justice

We're using this week's episode to highlight the work of Dr. Gaye Lang, the guest from episode 13 on this podcast. She's launched season 2 of her own podcast "Workplace Diversity" and had me on as a guest on this week's episode where we get into the nitty gritty of breaking down white supremacy culture with restorative justice practices.If you're interested in learning more about how she and others are applying restorative principles to the workplace subscribe to "Workplace Diversity" on Apple podcasts. And while you're at it, leave a rating or review.In the month of August I'm doing a lot of work with individual schools, but we do have a public workshop series, Foundations of Restorative Justice running on August 2nd and 9th. While not as in depth as our RJ summer intensive, the 8-hour foundations of RJ series Participants dive deeper into the restorative mindsets, proactive restorative practices, and the restorative process. You'll explore about how restorative values, self care practices, collaborative agreements, check in practices, communication for connection, and the restorative process get us to restorative outcomes of healing, relationships, and accountability. This is an opportunity to grow in your Restorative Journey by participating in group activities/discussion, building relationships with folx in your cohort, and self reflection on your practice.  Support Dr. Gaye Lang:https://www.workplacerestorativepracticesinc.com/ See all our workshops and courses at http://amplifyrj.com/learn Future Ancestor Collective (Community Gatherings): http://tiny.cc/ARJcommunity Rep Amplify RJ Gear at http://amplifyrj.threadless.com You can connect with Amplify RJ:Email list: http://tiny.cc/ARJemail Instagram: http://instagram.com/amplify.rjLinkedIn: http://linkedin.com/in/restorative-justice Facebook: http://facebook.com/amplifyrjTwitter: http://twitter.com/amplifyrjWebsite: http://amplifyrj.comReading list: http://amplifyrj.com/reading-list
