About Event

A hybrid conference for young adults (ages 18-35) interested in exploring connections between their spiritual, political, and interpersonal lives.


​Participants will gain foundational knowledge about historical and contemporary restorative justice (RJ) practices, learning from groups currently organizing for systemic change around RJ in national, local, and interpersonal communities. Through collaborative workshops and spiritual grounding exercises, participants will leave the conference with tools and strategies for practicing RJ in their own communities in ways that reflect their values and hopes for building abolitionist futures.


​Participants at all locations will come together to collaborate in hybrid workshops broadcast from each of the three sites throughout the conference. Each day, there will be site-specific sessions and exercises for both in-person and online participants.


​This year, the conference will be hosted online and at three separate locations – at Pendle Hill outside of Philadelphia, at Beacon Hill Friends House in Boston, and at Friends Place on Capitol Hill, in Washington, DC.
