Justice healers available, now branching out
Supporters of a promising new mediation program that unites crime victims and offenders are eager to do more work. They are also willing and able to handle more serious cases.
St. Croix Valley Restorative Justice relies on a core of trained volunteers. The program was launched just over two years ago by Marlene Parslow of River Falls, a family court counselor in Washington County, Minn., and Keith Rodli, a River Falls attorney who specializes in civil mediation.
