More than sixty people braved the weather to join the Community Conversation about restorative justice at the Beck Cultural Exchange Center on Friday, January 12. Tammi Campbell (ombudsperson for Knox County Schools) and Mark Stephens (Public Defender and director, Community Law Center, seen here addressing the audience) spoke about the challenges their institutions face in achieving equity and justice in the treatment of people of color and other disadvantaged populations.

Next up for OREPA: the MLK parade on Monday morning! Come and join us and be part of the delegation with the largest, most amazing street puppets in the parade—we’re starting at the other end this year, and line-up will be at the Midway at Chilhowee Park at 8:45am.
