Restorative Justice: An Emphasis on Healing Rather Than Retribution.  Democratic Perspective’s Steve Williamson and Mike Cosentino are joined by Elizabeth Yancey, mediator and former Presiding Magistrate of the Municipal Court of Sedona, Arizona, and Warren Sanford, Magistrate Pro-Tempore of the Municipal Court of Flagstaff, Arizona, for a discussion of restorative justice and its application by Arizona courts.

Find out what restorative justice is, how it works, and where it’s been most successful.
