Alyssa Yokota-Lewis Restorative Justice Specialist
Alyssa Rei Yokota-Lewis joined Umoja in July 2015 and is currently a Restorative Justice Specialist.
Alyssa came to Restorative Justice work through a profound drive to be a part of the solution against the school-to-prison pipeline. Young people in her work have informed and pushed her practice toward holistic supports, trauma-informed responses, and critical awareness of the school context. As a Restorative Justice Specialist, she is currently operating a peace room in Chicago's Southside Roseland community for grades 6-9.
