Draw for Justice
The Community Justice Initiatives Association is hosting its first “Draw for Justice” raffle to raise money for conflict resolution programs.
The Langley-based nonprofit society offers programs that create peaceful and balanced solutions to conflicts for many groups including schools, the criminal justice system, businesses, and community organizations.
It is currently working with Langley schools to keep them safe from bullying, conflict and violence through “Educating for Peacebuilding,” a restorative action project. By training conflict resolution specialists within the schools system and creating a “restorative” atmosphere, CJI says Langley schools can be healthy, productive places where students can learn and grow without fear, and become mature, responsible adults with strong values.
Since October 2000, the program has been running in two Langley schools, with initiatives started in a number of others.
The project is a collaborative effort between Fraser Region Community Justice Initiatives Association and the Langley School District with funding from the Vancouver Foundation and the National Crime Prevention Centre.
Raffle tickets to help support this initiative are $15 for one, $40 for three and $65 for five.
The grand prize in the draw is one return trip for two people to any scheduled WestJet destination.
Tickets can be ordered online at www.cjibc.org, by phone at 604-534-5515, in person or by mail at 101-20678 Eastleigh Cres. Langley, B.C. V3A 4C4.
