-- Janet Connors, Teaches "restorative justice" after her son was murdered
...
"I think every time [Janet] tells her story, students immediately like perk up, they're listening.

Janet Connors tells the agonizing story of losing her 19-year-old son, Joel, who was murdered during a home invasion in Boston in 2001. Before the tragedy, she was a long-time community activist, who had campaigned to make sure poor people's heat would not be turned off in winter and drove families to visit an incarcerated loved one -- because prisoners who maintained family connections had less recidivism. But upon her son's sudden death, Janet's core beliefs about justice were now "shaken to their core". She decided to reject paralyzing depression and vengeance, and instead devotes her life today to teaching public school students about "restorative justice", a philosophy that encourages forgiveness when wrongdoers accept accountability. We hear from Janet, and several members of Diploma Plus, a small learning community at Charlestown High, one of several public schools where she works in Boston. She also serves as a Fellow at the Suffolk University Center for Restorative Justice.

Janet Connors is a longtime community and social justice activist who has lived and worked in Dorchester all her life. A single mother, she raised three children but is known to many young people as Ma or Mama J and has more than 40 years' experience working with youth and families in community-based organizations. She worked as the survivor support coordinator at the Louis Brown Peace Institute for a number of years and today takes restorative justice practices to schools as alternatives to suspension. She is currently a community fellow and trainer with the Center for Restorative Justice at Suffolk University, a board member of Reflect & Strengthen, on the leadership team of both Mothers for Justice and Equality and the Family Advisory Committee for the Department of Children and Families, and is a Survivor to Survivor support consultant to the Beth Israel Deaconess Violence Prevention and Recovery Center. A survivor herself, Janethas met in restorative dialogue with two of the young men who killed her son Joel. Her own journey brought about a change in policy in Massachusetts, which now offers victims the option of calling for and participating in victim-offender dialogue.
