TJE Community College Intern
Rayna Velásquez is a second year Early Childhood Education Major at Solano Community College. She graduated high school from Da Vinci Charter Academy as a Restorative Practices Student Practitioner in 2017. Since joining TJE in the Fall of her graduating year, she has provided a student perspective in the ongoing discussion about Restorative Justice in schools, held circles for our team and some trainings, and established a mini library in the TJE office. Now, Rayna and a fellow Solano student are heading the Coalition for Transformative Justice. By partnering with TJE, they provide an educational and action-oriented space for dismantling injustices on the Solano Community College campus in hopes to create a legacy of change for the rest of the community to follow.
