Restorative justice is a community based and trauma informed practice used to build relationships, strengthen communities, encourage accountability, repair harm, and restore relationships when wrongdoings occur.
As an intervention following wrongdoing, restorative justice works with both the people who have caused harm and the victim(s) and community members impacted. Working with a restorative justice facilitator, participants identify harms, needs and obligations, then make a plan to repair the harm and put things as right as possible.
