On Saturday, May 21st @ 11AM, Women Hold Up Half The Sky‘s Amy Mostafa hosts Johanna Romero, Cal alumna and Restorative Justice Center student leader at Cal! Johanna graduated with a degree in Peace & Conflict Studies with an emphasis on U.S. Human Rights and Global Poverty & Practice. Her most valuable experiences of deep learning and growth came about through community building, self-reflection, and social justice service work as a Bonner student leader in Alternative Breaks, a critical service learning program aimed to address social/structural inequalities by serving various marginalized and resilient communities.
With a critical lens and loving compassion, Johanna aims to work alongside youth to challenge and transform the current U.S. food and education system to better provide youth with tools to connect back to their roots with the Earth, to be active leaders in transforming the world around them, and to create community through conflict resolution. Her innate faith in Restorative Justice as well as personal experience with the practice drives her in becoming a RJ practitioner and a life-long learner!
