A Restorative Approach
Welcome to the 2020 Youth Summit Digital Equity and RJ Resource Library!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Youth Summit has been canceled, however, we have compiled a series of digital resources from various NYC schools, organization, and youth-adult teams focused on youth voice, equity, and restorative justice.

This resource document was put together by SEE, YRJ and Youth Summit Youth Leaders. This resource is designed to support youth and communities across our city to unpack the trauma, anxiety, and confusion that we are all sitting with in regards to current events. It is a compilation of websites, articles, books, podcasts, and more to support youth with finding ways to have their voices heard and be leaders in taking action against the racial injustices occurring across our country.
Disproportionality is the outcome of institutionalized racism and bias that result in discriminatory beliefs, policies, and practices, which negatively affect historically marginalized groups in contrast to privileged groups.
RJ is a community-based approach to building, repairing and restoring relationships. RJ provides a space for community members to be held accountable while participating in the creation of pathways to repair. It encourages stakeholders to reflect upon how their values and beliefs impact the greater community.
