What is Restorative Justice?

So you’d like to learn more about restorative justice?

Here are some definitions and links we hope help:

Restorative Justice – Definitions:

  • Restorative justice is an approach to justice where offenders are encouraged to take responsibility for their actions and “to repair the harm they’ve done- by apologizing, returning stolen money, or (for example) doing community service”. … – Wikipedia
  • A cost-effective criminal justice approach that is based on reconciliation, restoration, healing and rehabilitation. Restorative justice refers to a movement promoting humane, transformative and cost-effective alternatives to our current punitive, failed and costly system of mass incarceration. – Ella Baker Center
  • Any of several forms of justice that attempts to repair the harm done to the victim, sometimes by making the offender make restitution – Wiktionary
  • Restorative justice emphasizes the way in which crimes hurt relationships between people who live in a community. Crime is seen as something done against a victim and a community—not simply as a violation against the state. … – Center for Community Corrections

When it’s based on a core-values conversation, RJ is incredibly powerful.
