Silver Linings: Free Open Forum with Shelby Demby

A Live Forum for exploring hidden evolutionary opportunities in a time of chaos.

What started as a global “pause” triggered by a deadly pandemic became a spotlight revealing many dysfunctional and inequitable underpinnings of our society. The ensuing struggle, triggered by a brutal act, continues between the forces for fundamental societal change and the defenders of the status quo. We are all participants, in one way or another, in this evolutionary turning point. How can we use this historic moment of crisis/opportunity to generate a giant leap forward for humanity?

Our guest speaker was Shelby Demby, President of the Colorado Division of Restorative Justice Education, who informs us about the principles of restorative justice and ways of implementing them in schools to create an optimal learning environments for all students.
