Widely known as “the grandfather of restorative justice,” Howard Zehr is a leading practitioner and theorist in the field of restorative justice, an approach to justice that seeks to restore the harms caused by crime. Also an accomplished photographer, Zehr’s talk will explore the ways in which both justice and photography have tended to “other” and silence particular groups of people and presents a vision for both that honors and brings forth voices, reduces social distance and uses silence appropriately. He will use his own work in restorative justice and photography as examples, including drawing on his three justice photo documentary books Doing Life: Reflections of Men and Women Serving Life Without Parole, Transcending: Reflections of Crime Victims and What Will Happen to Me? When a Parent is in Prison.

Zehr is the Distinguished Professor of Restorative Justice at the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, Eastern Mennonite University.

This event is taking part in connection with the “360° "Women in Walled Communities: Silence, Voice, Vision." It is also being sponsored by the Pensby Center.
