Sat Nam Dear Members of our 3HO, Sikh Dharma, and KRI Community,
As a community built on a shared vision of service, righteous action and goodwill to all, we are facing a time of challenge and polarization. The pain and division that our community is currently experiencing necessitates that we work together to find a place of understanding and healing. Towards that end, we are beginning a program of Compassionate Reconciliation based on the principles of restorative justice, conflict transformation, and other modalities. We hope to include all facets of our community in this effort, as each person is important and all voices need to be included to truly be successful.
We have engaged a team of restorative consultants to help guide us through this process. To find the right team of consultants, the Siri Singh Sahib Corporation (SSSC) created an interim commission with members from the SSSC and our legacy organizations to research the work that has been done in the area of restorative justice and conflict transformation. After vetting 17 teams from around the world, and conducting 12 interviews, three teams were selected for a second round of interviews before making a final decision. We are very happy to announce that our final choice, Just Outcomes, has been hired to help facilitate the Compassionate Reconciliation efforts for our community.
Just Outcomes is experienced in supporting communities who are responding to harmful and difficult situations. They will work with us to create a meaningful approach to the issues that we are facing. These include helping those who reported harm, resolving the issues that divide our community, and finding lasting and just solutions. This will not be a superficial process, and therefore will not be a quick process. We expect to be working with this effort for the next one to two years and we are committed to investing the time and energy required for this work to be successful.
As a first step, a Compassionate Reconciliation Commission will be formed to work directly with Just Outcomes. The commission will consist of members from various facets of our community, who will serve to guide us in this process.
Meanwhile, we invite you to get to know the Just Outcomes team.
