Sharing Experience, Shifting the Paradigm

The Restorative Justice Project at Impact Justice partners with communities across the nation to address harm through dialogue among those most impacted. We work to shift the paradigm from seeing crime as a violation of the law to understanding crime as harm that requires individual, interpersonal, community, and system-wide accountability and healing. Through our approach to restorative justice diversion (RJD), survivors have a voice in their healing process and young people are accountable for harm they’ve caused without being pushed into the juvenile legal system.
