Designing an Apology

Sorry we're open.

The team at Now Accepting Apologies will lead a workshop on the communication strategies they have researched, learned, and practiced from leading experts and therapists around the U.S. This workshop will explore low-level harm in community, communication strategies, as well as a short discussion in community building from a restorative justice lens.

Now Accepting Apologies is a media project focused on storytelling and changing the culture surrounding accountability. It’s for anyone who has ever wondered deeply about responsibility, consequence, justice, and forgiveness. Learn more at
