History

Founded in 2011 by Molly Rowan Leach, Restorative Justice on The Rise has grown into a global virtual network and community of practitioners, academics, students, teachers, and citizens who are daily amplifying the movement within and beyond restorative justice.o.

Restorative Justice on The Rise is the leading live public dialogue forum focusing on the justice transformation in the U.S. and beyond, and provides real-time conversation with national and global leaders in the field, providing key tools, education, and awareness building as the movement continues to build exponential momentum.

Featuring a live and pre-submitted Q&A with public participants, this show in its 3rd season is regarded as one of the most significant and authentic platforms for free media and significant for how it augments individual and national mobilization.

Restorative Justice on The Rise is an international live dialogue via Webcast and Telecouncil platform, held weekly, reaching an international constituency of a wide spectrum of individuals, organizations, professionals, academics, practitioners, stakeholders, and beyond.
