New to Restorative Justice?

Home: Welcome

What is RJ?

Restorative justice is an approach to addressing harm and resolving conflicts that focuses on repairing the harm caused by a crime or wrongdoing. It emphasizes healing and reconciliation, involving the participation of all parties affected by an incident, including the victim, the offender, and the community.

Unlike traditional criminal justice systems that prioritize punishment and isolation of the offender, restorative justice seeks to address the underlying causes of the harm and promote accountability, understanding, and positive change. It aims to empower victims, hold offenders accountable for their actions, and foster a sense of community involvement in the justice process.

  • What's needed to make things right?
