During her career as an educator, dating back to London, England in 1967, Kappy was introduced to Restorative Justice.  As Assistant Principal of a small, non-traditional high school in Boulder, Colorado, she facilitated a student-led restorative justice team that facilitated circles for student infractions in their own school and nearby middle schools. She also led the Student Equity Leadership Cohort at New Vista for four years and made presentations on intercultural competency to the restorative justice community.

Kappy co-founded with Beverly Title ReSolutionaries, Inc. which provides training and consultation in restorative practices to schools and school districts in Colorado.  Over time, it became clear to Kappy and her colleagues that restorative justice (RJ) and equity are inextricably entwined, that RJ is the “how” of equity.  RJ provides opportunities for equal voice and equal access that can lead to transformation in communities and relationships.

Currently, Kappy volunteers for the Boulder Country District Attorney’s and 19th Judicial District Restorative Justice Programs.  Retired from training, she brings the voice of a “wise elder” to restorative justice communities and provides counsel and guidance to Claro KC.
