My name is Amy Brant Edward.
I am Kanyen’keha:ka (Mohawk), I was born and raised in Brantford, Ontario, and I am a citizen of Six Nations of the Grand River.
I am the Restorative Justice Coordinator at the First Peoples Justice Centre of Montreal.
My role is working on the development and organization of a Justice Circle program within Tio’tia:ke (Montreal).
This will provide Indigenous peoples in Tio’tia:ke the opportunity to meaningfully engage with justice, to be respected during these processes and have their voices listened to.
The centre values pathways of seeking justice that are focused more towards ways of healing and repairing relationships rather than enforcing punishment.
