RESTORATIVE JUSTICE

Restorative justice is a philosophy that emphasizes repairing the harm caused by “wrongdoing” and conflict, placing decisions in the hands of those who have been most affected - addressing the concern to the person harmed, the person who caused the harm, and the surrounding community. Restorative justice is about the capacity of ordinary people to prevent, identify, and solve their problems.

 

Restorative justice is a philosophy founded on the belief that relationships built on values such as dignity, respect, trust, and love, are the glue that holds communities together.

 

Restorative justice uses strategies to build and strengthen relationships before a conflict, so if and when a conflict arises, key stakeholders work together to collectively address harms, needs, and obligations to learn from, heal, and minimize the recurrence.

 

Restorative Justice is an approach to justice that heals harm and restores relationships.

 

If you are someone who is interested in learning about the Philosophy of Restorative Justice, beginning their journey as a circle keeper, strengthening their circle keeping practice, or deepening their current understanding of the philosophy, I invite you to select a service that best fits your needs.

What are Peace Circles?

The peace circle process is an engaging and dynamic tool that brings the philosophy of Restorative Justice to life. The circle process can heal, deepen, and sustain healthy relationships within households, families, street organizations, businesses, churches, and any place people share space.

 

Whether it's for processing the transition of life, celebrating an event, restoring family connections, returning home from serving time, or just supporting individuals on their journey, the circle is an effective tool for communication.

 

The process fosters shared values such as respect, honesty, empathy, and accountability.

The circle process is suitable for 6 - 12 participants at a time.

Do you have space to donate for a circle? Barbershops, salons, churches, art galleries, cafes, backyards.
