What is Restorative Justice?

Restorative justice is theory of justice, a framework to address harm, and a movement that seeks to transform people, relationships and our communities. Rooted in the traditional practices of Indigenous cultures around the world, restorative justice broadens the focus from punishment as justice to a system that creates healing and accountability by repairing harms and relationships. In practice, restorative justice brings together survivors, responsible parties, and community members to address harms, identify needs, obligations, and the underlying causes of crime and conflict. Restorative Justice provides opportunities for all parties to share their experiences and unique journey, provide healing to survivors, restore responsible parties to their families and communities, and prevent future harms to interpersonal relationships and communities. While repair may not always be possible, all parties and the community can come together to transform and heal the harm and suffering that comes from violence.
