Cultural Competency Workshop: The Color of Justice
February 17, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm$50
The Color of Justice: Diverse Views of Law & Enforcement
Our views of justice, interpretations of the law, conflict resolution, fairness, and policing are impacted by the values we hold. In recent conflicts, discussions about these differences were non-existent. Is it possible that our opposing perspectives could have been a solution to conflict rather than a detriment? This session will present differing cultural views of law and justice, as from the American Indian history and value system, to illustrate how conflict can be effectively managed.
Upon completion of this session, participants will:
- Gain knowledge of differing values-based views of law and enforcement
- Be able to articulate the major historical events impacting views of law, policing, and enforcement
- Be able to apply the learned concepts to help interact with American Indian populations
Who should attend: Law enforcement officials, court judges and personnel, youth group home professionals, juvenile justice professionals, attorneys, and others working in justice systems.
The cost is $50 to attend. Please visit the Registration page to sign up and for payment details. We are now able to accept payments online!
Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
The Cultural Competency Workshop Series is a service of SPRC for professionals in the Bismarck-Mandan area working with and in American Indian populations. CEUs are provided where possible.
