Indigenous Peacemaking Initiative Advisory Committee Member the Honorable Timothy Connors of the 22nd Circuit Court in Washtenaw County, Michigan was selected for The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) Innovator of the Year! Judge Connors’ work implementing Native American methods of peacemaking in tribal and community courts is deserving of recognition, thank you Tim! Judge Connors said, “I am forever grateful to the Michigan Supreme Court, the University of Michigan Law School, and now the NCJFCJ for opening this path of Peacemaking and restorative justice in state court systems, this path is the creation of the collaborative effort of the National American Indian Court Judges Association, the Native American Rights Fund Indigenous Peacemaking Initiative and the Michigan Tribal State Federal Forum to find common ground. This common ground greatly benefits our youth, our families and our communities. I hope all of our states will choose to walk this path together.”
