Judge Jennifer Kinsley Attends Restorative Practices Think Tank

On Saturday, March 23rd, Judge Jennifer Kinsely attended a restorative practices Think Tank hosted by Community and Restorative Justice-Covington. The event brought scholars, court and agency leaders, and front-line workers together to discuss how to bring more restorative practices to the courts and communities of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Restorative practices aim to transform relationships between individuals, within systems, and within cultures by promoting respect, dignity, and mutual concern for others. Activities and discussions allowed attendees to learn how restorative practices can help heal communities and build social connections. The event was sponsored by the Hamilton County Juvenile Court, the YWCA of Cincinnati, the Wolf Program in Ethics and Professional Identity, the Taft Museum, and Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase College of Law. About the experience, Judge Kinsley said, “At the Think Tank, I engaged with the some of the nation’s leading experts on community restoration and healing. I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn how to better serve the community through restorative practices.”
