Bi–Annual George Brown College Social Justice Conference

About the Conference

The Social Justice one-day conference will help Grade 11 and 12 students gain an understanding of social and restorative justice in the hope of encouraging them to engage in civic activities in their communities and help make a difference.

A reading of the stage play Tough Case, by David S. Craig will open the conference. A gritty, fast moving drama depicts the resolution of a crime through restorative justice practices. Described as “a court room drama without the courtroom” it will engage everyone from the first line.

Following the reading, students will have the opportunity to ask questions of the playwright and performers and then break up into small groups to discuss what they viewed and experienced.

A tour of the college and lunch will be provided.
