    Good evening, Deb. I recently attended the RJ Symposium in Colorado Springs. As a school counselor, I am very intrigued about how to most effectively incorporate RJ into the school discipline process. When you presented the data with Mr. Lee on Thursday of the conference about the numbers of students from the 4 districts that had elected RJ, I thought I understood the data to say that only 15 African American kids elected RJ. This brought up a lot of questions for me. I am wondering if I may continue this dialog with you at some point? Thank you for your time and for the great conference!
