Webinar: Restorative Justice for Violence Prevention and Intervention
February 22 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm EST
This session will introduce participants to the key principles of restorative justice, an alternative response to crime that focuses on understanding the needs that led to an offense, the impacts of the crime on the victim and wider community, and on forming a plan to repair the harm caused to the degree possible. Restorative justice approaches promote accountability and help facilitate greater understanding and healing.
The panel will feature representatives from community restorative justice programs who will discuss their programs, how they interact with the criminal justice system, and outcomes relevant to community violence prevention and intervention. Presenters will share recommendations for implementing restorative justice across the country based on their experience.
Learning Outcomes: 1) Participants will understand basic restorative justice principles and practices; 2) be introduced to a range of restorative justice programs responding to violent crime around the country; and 3) consider the applicability of restorative approaches for violence prevention and intervention.
