In recent weeks, the Essex CJC has been the subject a number of articles, news segments, and a video presentation.
- One article focused on how those who have caused harm seek to make amends.
- Others focused on engaging communities about formerly incarcerated individuals and the role of community volunteers to promote supportive interactions and ensure meaningful accountability. One article was published in the Essex Reporter and a news segment explored community concerns and the responses by DOC and Essex CJC.
- Finally, here is a video exploring some of the history and evolution of restorative justice in Vermont, featuring Jill Evans, Essex CJC Director, Derek Miodownik, Restorative and Community Justice Executive, DOC, and Laura Zeliger, Community & Restorative Justice Director, as well as Essex CJC staff and volunteers.
