the Heart of the Matter"The Restorative Justice department of CORA
Services is launching the Transforming Justice Hub: a two-tiered
project that seeks to empower Philadelphians who have been both
impacted by and involved in neighborhood gun violence to interrupt
cycles of conflict through community dialogue and community
organizing.In service of this mission, the hub will host a
recurring six-month Popular Education course that trains youth, in
neighborhoods most familiar with the conditions of gun violence, to
become certified circle keepers, peer mediators, and community
organizers. The course comprises 40 hours of facilitation training,
10 hours of political education, and 6 hours of hands-on practice
leading restorative justice models. The second component of this
project is providing restorative justice services, from
de-escalation to healing circles, to the overall community in these
youth's neighborhoods. The youth participating in the six-month
course will partner with CORA staff to facilitate these models in
their respective neighborhoods.This project was designed with the
understanding that neighborhood gun violence, and other forms of
intracommunal violence, is often a trauma response of marginalized
communities being subjected to oppressive living conditions. We
