Join us for a panel discussion about Victim Impact Programs in prisons:
What are they, and what do they tell us about developing empathy in prisons?
- Nicole Heidemann of You Have the Power (USA), the creators of a Victim Impact curriculum for prisons.
- Kate Johnson, a former prison chaplain who has run the Victim Impact program in Canadian prisons with over 200 participants.
- Steve Sullivan, Canada’s first federal ombudsman for victims and current Executive Director of Ottawa Victim Services.
- Schuyler Playford of the Church Council on Justice and Corrections, which oversaw the evaluation of a Victim Impact program
Our Moderator Stephen Siemens (Restorative Justice Coordinator at MCC Canada) will share a reflection on empathy as it relates to the work of criminal justice and faith communities.
