What is Restorative Justice?

Restorative justice brings people together to build community and address harm through community-based circle processes. At the heart of RJ is the belief that strong communities are essential to preventing harm from occurring. When harm or conflict arises, a trauma-informed, circle practitioner engages participants in transformational processes that address the needs of all who are affected. These processes emphasize accountability, humanity and community. Restorative practices promote the creation of spaces of trust and respect with housemates, co-workers, and partners for difficult conversations and deep listening.

What are potential RJ responses to cases of Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment? How can we work in partnership to ensure best practices, reduce harm and envision structural change?

REQUEST OUR SERVICES

We offer community building circles and circles in response to harm to students and staff on campus. Whether the need is resolving conflict or strengthening bonds, our trauma-informed restorative practitioners can work with you to develop a process that meets your community's needs.

Our Services

REQUEST A WORKSHOP AND TRAINING

Our workshops on Restorative Responses for Racial and other Identity Harms invite communities to come together to address behaviors and language that can fracture relationships, impede equity and belonging and escalate into deep and long lasting conflict and harm. We focus on prevention, accountability and repair.

Workshops and Trainings

Our trainings in Restorative Justice and Restorative Practices engage participants in experiential learning of the principles and practices of community building, conflict resolution and restorative justice. We aim to equip folks on campus and beyond with the knowledge and experience to practice RJ within their own community spaces.

Every year we identify key topics of engagement and we work with our campus partners on RJ initiatives to address these topics.
