TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 04, 2020
Center for Community (C4C) S350, CU BOULDER
Limited to 30 people
Curious about learning what Restorative Justice is and how to use it in your communities? Join us for this workshop to find out!
Folks who are curious about learning what Restorative Justice is and connecting with people passionate about transforming their communities should consider attending this TEDxCUSalon workshop. In this session, we will dive deep into the restorative paradigm by challenging ourselves to assume that everyone’s core self is good and built for meaningful connection. Come ready to tackle messy, unwieldy problems with five guiding words: Relationship, Respect, Responsibility, Repair, and Reintegration.
This TEDxCUSalon is done in partnership with the Restorative Justice Program at the University of Colorado Boulder.
This TEDxCUSalon will be guided by Tyler Keyworth and Rachel Larsen.
Tyler Keyworth is Assistant Director for Conflict Resolution and Restorative Justice in Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution at the University of Colorado Boulder. In this role, he oversees the university’s conflict resolution and restorative justice efforts. Tyler holds an MS from University of Baltimore in Conflict Negotiations and Conflict Management and attended St. Mary’s College of Maryland for a BA in Political Science. After beginning his career as an AmeriCorps Member in community mediation, Tyler has developed extensive experience training in restorative justice and conflict resolution.

Rachel Larsen is the Restorative Justice Coordinator in Student Conduct and Conflict Resolutation at the University of Colorado Boulder. After experiencing a division in her faith community, Rachel discovered Restorative Justice as an alternative way to approach conflict, harm, and victimization.

Currently, Rachel is studying how to apply a restorative approach to intimate violence and environmental harm.
