Journalist Allen Arthur had a eureka moment four years ago while working with people who’d been incarcerated. He realized that journalists could build healthier, less transactional and potentially even healing relationships with people if they learned from restorative justice.
The culmination of that work is this guide Arthur wrote for Free Press: The Moment Is Magic, which contains seven tips from seven restorative-justice practitioners. What you’ll find inside are actionable, impactful steps journalists can take when having difficult conversations. We hope this guide reveals a new way of working, one that treats the other side of the “interview” as delicate, sacred and powerful.
