Restorative Justice Initiative
The Restorative Justice Initiative in Fresno County is funded by the California Endowment and is charged with developing a policy advocacy plan for the adoption and integration of a sustainable model of restorative justice for Fresno County's juvenile justice system.
Restorative Justice is a way of responding to conflict, misbehavior and crime that makes things as right as possible for all who were impacted. Restorative Justice includes recognizing the conflict or harm, repairing the damage (physical and relational) as much as possible and creating future accountability plans and/or agreements that will prevent the same thing from happening again. Restorative Justice includes programs, processes, and procedures that are guided by RJ principles (Page 6, Fresno County RJ Framework) and also available here.
The goal of the Restorative Justice Initiative is to develop a policy advocacy plan for a restorative justice model for the juvenile justice court in Fresno County. In order to develop this model, we will be hosting meetings with key community and government stakeholders and inviting several speakers to speak on different aspects of restorative justice. The grant's objectives are available here. If you support the idea of implementing restorative justice in our juvenile justice courts record it here.
