In Communities

Crime tears at the fabric of all communities, particularly neighborhoods that are struggling economically. Vulnerable areas can become hopeless places. Restorative justice activities bring people together and empower them to work for safety, services, and programs that heal. Restorative justice for communities includes:

  • Working with law enforcement officials to reduce violence
  • Providing alternatives for at-risk youth that make gangs less attractive
  • Organizing people to improve public services and change laws
