(in the South Suburbs):  On 2/21/2017 I met with Karen Fulton, Executive Director.  Ms. Fulton is a retired educator who has created the group PEACE for the South Suburbs.  The group's mission is to enrich the youth and families and create positive community change. 

As a side note the Case Coordinator/Social Worker for Rickover Junior High School had an introductory meeting with Ms. Fulton on the subject of Restorative Justice during the 2015-2016 school year.  The Social Worker for Rickover is planning on having future trainings within the district. 

We will be coordinating free training with the PEACE Group and the Police Department in the future.

Wishing everyone peace and reflection during this Lenten season.
