    Maria Sherman, writing for Track Record:

    I reached out to Sheridan Allen, a Philadelphia-based social worker who runs Punk Talks, an organization that offers free professional therapy to music workers. They provide education, awareness, and advocacy around mental illness and accessibility to treatment. She and her team of 15 volunteers (including three licensed therapists and a pharmacist) have been asking the same questions for a long time, so I asked her: What does restorative justice look like within the music industry?

  2. I'm glad the conversation is shifting in this direction. This feels like positive action. I hate the retroactive nature of most of these situations.

    This was a great article. Just the questions I wanted to see asked, and having them answered as best as one could hope for at this time. Especially the question regarding abusers being allowed back into the music community.
