Anti-Asian Violence & Restorative Justice – Creative/Experimental
Imagine what restorative justice might look and feel like in the Vincent Chin case. Who do you imagine would be at the restorative justice meeting in the Vincent Chin case? What do you think the victims (Lily Chin, Vikki Wong, Jimmy Choi) want to say to the offenders (Ronald Ebens & Michael Nitz)? What steps do you think the people involved might decide to repair the offenders’ harm?
With this option, you will want to utilize the
(Who Killed Vincent Chin? (1987), “The New Violence” by Helen Zia for Bridge, and Lily Chin’s letter to Detroit Chinese Welfare Council) provided in the module to imagine what the people involved in the Vincent Chin case might want to say to each other. You will also NEED to do some additional research on
to understand better how the restorative justice process works. Please provide a citation for the resource you use in the brief explanation of your project.
You will also want to include a Works Cited page using the
Modern Language Associations
format, crediting the sources that informed your thinking about your project.
