Interview with Marleen Stacey: The Restorative Justice Program In Kahnawake (Sken:Nen A’onsonton)


Sken:nen A’onsonton is a restorative justice program in Kahnawake, a reserve on the South Shore of Montreal. In our inaugural episode, Samantha Levy sits down with its coordinator, Marleen Stacey, to discuss why the program was started, how it addresses particular needs within the community, and how her training as a social worker has assisted her in her practice.

Ms. Stacey presents the range of conflicts that Sken:nen A’onsonton deals with – from school disciplinary issues, to family law and criminal offences. More specifically, she speaks from experience about the types of conflicts that are best and worst suited to resolution through restorative justice.
