Liz Porter-Merrill

RJ facilitator/practitioner

About My Services

liz regularly facilitates high-impact dialogues (HID aka HR-VOD) and community group conferences - within and outside the criminal legal system. she also is a circle keeper, using circle process to support community-building/connection, for deep personal awareness & growth, and to support people impacted by the criminal legal system – both harmed people and people responsible for harm. liz offers circle process training to those interested in circle keeping through the Circles Project, and is an instructor for Lynn Lee's high-impact dialogue facilitator training. liz aspires to cultivate a paradigm grounded in supportive accountability, healing, and transformation for all. she believes that work begins with each of us as individuals, how we raise our kids, and how we, as a society, prioritize and treat our children.
