In addition to dropping viral truth bombs online through his instagram @restortingracialjustice, Jorge Santos is a restorative justice coordinator and a special education teacher in Brooklyn, NY. We cover so much in this conversation from his journey from working in criminal justice to stepping into the classroom, the need for doing this work the right way in schools, and if you stick around we get to talk about my true passion the NBA.
We’re also collaborating on an Intro to Racial & Restorative Justice workshop on Saturday, January 30, from 9-11am Pacific time and if you’re still curious about the basics of this work from a racial justice lens, we’d love to have you join us and bring a friend!
