April 13 - Community Dinner
Topic: Restorative Justice: A Discussion of Community, Civility, Reconciliation, and Values
Restorative justice is about healing the wounds of a fractured community. It brings together the victim, offender and the community to make things right. Complementing the traditional justice system, restorative justice puts victim needs and the victim’s voice central while requiring offender accountability. This community-based approach to justice is sweeping through the country. Come and hear how it is transforming Louisville. Our guest speakers will be the founders of Restorative Justice Louisville Inc.: Judge Angela Bisig, a former prosecutor who currently sits as a judge in Jefferson Circuit Court, and Tom Williams, an employment law attorney, mediator and a leader of Compassionate Louisville.
Judge Angela Bisig, a member of the Kentucky Judiciary for 14 years, is currently a Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge. She worked as a Juvenile Court Judge for many years and also helped to establish a special program called the Enhanced Supervision Docket requiring court supervision of domestic violence offenders. As the current chair of the board of directors for Restorative Justice Louisville, she has assisted in bringing a restorative justice pilot project to juvenile court. This project is transforming youth in our community that have been charged with crimes in juvenile court. She has also worked for years on the Chief Justice’s Racial Fairness Task Force.
Tom Williams is a member in Stoll Keenon Ogden’s Louisville office. He serves as co-chair of the Arbitration & Mediation practice and is a member of the Labor, Employment & Employee Benefits practice. Tom is past President of the Louisville Bar Association. Since 2008, he has been recognized by Kentucky Super Lawyers as one of the top 50 attorneys in the state. In addition to his litigation practice, he is an employment law mediator and a frequent lecturer, trainer and writer on employment law topics.
