Brenda Wheeler Ehlers and Amelia Riekenberg: Restorative Justice

Event Date: June 2nd, 2019 at 11:00am - 12:00pm
Address : 516 Prospect Street, Maplewood, NJ, USA

Restorative justice repairs the harm caused by crime. When victims, offenders and community members meet to decide how to do that, the results can be transformational. It emphasizes accountability, making amends, and — if they are interested — facilitated meetings between victims, offenders, and other persons. Restorative justice is an important contemporary expression of timeless standards of justice.


Rev. Ehlers began serving as Morrow Church’s director of educational ministries in

2003. She was appointed associate pastor for children, youth and education ministries in 2006. Rev. Ehlers lives in Maplewood with her husband, Bill, and their three children.


Amelia Riekenberg, self-employed Mediator (Family Law) and self-described

“Peacemaker, collaborator, worker bee for social justice,” is a Morrow Church member, parent, and Seth Boyden Elementary School Parent-Teacher Association chair.
