Arun Gandhi, James Gilligan, Frances Moore Lappé, and Michael Nagler with Mark Gonnerman

Saturday, August 14, 2004 | 10:00 – 5:00 | Kresge Auditorium | Free and Open to All

At the beginning of a new century marked already by war and seemingly intractable conflicts, it is more important than ever to listen to thinkers and leaders with historical knowledge, cultivated insight, and practical approaches to peace. We have invited four such people to Stanford for a symposium on ways and means to improve our prospects for a less threatening future at home and abroad.

Restorative Justice:
Reducing Crime by Reforming Prisoner Experience

Michael Hennessey and Cathrine Sneed with Michael Krasny

Thursday, April 14, 2005 | 7:30 – 9:00pm | Kresge Auditorium | Free and Open to All

This conversation raises this question, and suggests practical and proven approaches to change.
