On Thursday, Sessions issued a memo overturning the one put...

The Importance of Connection | Alissa R. Ackerman | TEDxCSULB (www.YouTube.com) & Commentary

Cissy's note: The TedTalk below is given by one of my good friends, Alissa. When she first told me about the restorative justice work she was doing with Dr. Jill Levenson, speaking with convicted of sexual offending, where she shared about her experiences as a survivor of sexual assault, (aka, without her "professional shield," as she says), I was concerned.
