I believe the clearest and strongest benefit [of the Justice Talking program] is the team-building and thoughtful reflection it encourages. Our members are scattered throughout the state at host sites, so building a relationship among them is important but challenging. This year, we had an issue within the corps that caused some tension among the members, and I believe the Justice Talking program helped them to get back in a shared service mindset and into a team spirit.”
