Restorative Justice is a facilitated dialogue between people harmed by an incident and those suspected of causing the harm. The dialogue takes place in a circle with a trained Restorative Justice facilitator guiding the conversation. Anyone who might have been involved or directly impacted by an incident can be invited to participate. Participants may include family members, friends, peers, teachers, school administrators, store owners, or property owners. The process allows everyone to voice their perspective and to agree on what must be done to repair the harm. Click for more information about our Restorative Justice services.
