Thank you!

Community Justice Initiatives’ (CJI) fundraising dinner last week, "Coming Full Circle", proved to be a wonderful evening.  The story of healing shared by Katy Hutchison was an inspiration to all who attended.  

The CJI Board and Staff would like to thank each of you for supporting this work through your presence at the dinner, your donations, and your ticket purchases.

Together we can continue to play a role in creating more stories of healing and peace – through the Victim Offender Mediation Program, through CJI's work with children and youth in schools, and through training others locally and internationally in restorative justice.

In 2005, Marlyn and Ian Ferguson received a phone call no one ever wants to receive: their son had been murdered. With a total of seven convictions over the next number of years, their need for information was still not satisfied as there was still too much shrouded in mystery.

Another life-changing phone call occurred years later: Marlyn contacted CJI about the Victim Offender Mediation Program. From this point on, they began walking down a path to meet with three of the men responsible for their son's death.

At this year's event, Marlyn Ferguson will share her powerful story of courage in the months and years following her son's murder.

The evening will include a gourmet dinner and silent auction. All proceeds will benefit CJI's programs.

Tickets:$65/each or $480/table of 8
