DISRUPT, CONNECT, ENGAGE
Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council and Community Justice Initiatives invite you to an featuring the Honorable Kim Pate, Senator and Canada’s leading advocate for Decarceration. The evening will challenge our views of justice by looking behind the prison walls.
Decarceration means healing from trauma, restoring human rights, taking prevention seriously and ultimately significantly reducing the number of persons behind bars. The event will shed light on the humanity of the people caught in our criminal justice system and on the root causes of crime. Imagine a just community. Imagine a Restorative Waterloo Region.
The Kim Pate is a nationally renowned advocate who has spent the last 35 years working in and around the legal and penal systems of Canada, with and on behalf of some of the most marginalized, victimized, criminalized and institutionalized people.
Following Senator Pate’s keynote address Carol Leaman, a serial innovator and the CEO of Axonify, will explore how the Tech sector movement can play a role in re-visioning our region.
How can the worlds of high tech and justice combine to build a community that is more connected, compassionate, engaged and upstream focused.
Guests are invited to join Senator Kim Pate and Carol Leaman for a reception in the beautiful Atrium of CIGI following the presentations to continue the conversation.
