Today's episode is crossover with the podcast “Do We Know Things” by Dr. Lisa Dawn Hamilton. She is a psychology professor and sex educator and the podcast challenges the thing people think they know about sex. This episode "Rethinking Justice for Sexual Assualt" aired in June of 2020. It features an interview with me (David) breaking down Restorative Justice for her audience and an interview with Mia Hunte of Hidden Water NYC sharing how circle work helped her heal from her sexual assault. The content is heavy, especially in the second half, but it’s definitely worth the listen.Contact, Learn More, Support:Lisa Dawn:IG: @doweknowthingsDoweknowthings.comMia & Hidden WaterIG: @lyriaraeIG: @hiddenwaternychiddenwatercircle.orgMarlee & Re-Humanize:IG: @marleelissIG: marleeliss.comIG: @_rehumanizerehumanizemovement.comCheck out all the Amplify RJ workshops at amplifyrj.eventbrite.comLink to David's 30th Birthday Party/ARJ Fundraiser here: tiny.cc/ARJ30You can connect with us on:Podcast: thisrjlife.buzzsprout.comEmail list: http://tiny.cc/ARJemail Instagram: http://instagram.com/amplify.rjFacebook: http://facebook.com/amplifyrjTwitter: http://twitter.com/amplifyrjPatreon: http://patreon.com/amplifyrjWebsite: http://amplifyrj.comReading list: http://amplifyrj.com/reading-listMake sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss an episode.

When he’s not hitting the books as an Ethnic Studies major at San Francisco State University he’s doing Restorative Justice work with Oakland Unified School District AND with Amplify RJ. Did I mention he’s 19 years old? This is a much shorter conversation than this podcasts first episode with Cheryl Graves, but while it’s shorter in length, it’s DEFINITELY just as packed with wisdom and laughs. But enough from me, let’s get into the conversation with Oakland’s own Griffen Castillo. Say Happy Birthday and connect with Griffen viaEmail: castillogriffen@gmail.com LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/griffencastillo/ & Venmo: https://venmo.com/Griffen-Castillo.Check out all the Amplify RJ workshops at amplifyrj.eventbrite.com.
