Young people co-create peace in Chicago. The peace ambassadors will share their experiences as developing restorative justice practitioners — supporting community organizations who may not have many resources, but want to develop healing spaces. The ambassadors will share the basic components of mapping conflict, crisis support, and resiliency. Participants will walk away with the understanding that they can contribute to transforming conflict in their communities and within themselves.
