The National Center on Restorative Justice provides restorative justice education and training for criminal justice system actors and the general public.
Expansion of implementation of restorative justice in the criminal justice context hinges on greater buy-in from justice system actors (police, judges, lawyers, probation/diversion officers, etc.) who have the power to refer cases to restorative justice and the general public. Justice system actors and the general public need to know what restorative justice is and why they should care.
Toward this end, the NCORJ regularly offers introductory restorative justice educational opportunities, both online and in person, through workshops, webinars, trainings, and events.
Education in Prisons
Prisons in the US tend toward harsh conditions and unhealthy relations within them. Teaching the basic principles and practices of restorative justice inside a prison setting could enable accountability, better communication, and greater understanding of relational obligations.
As a part of its mission to increase public access to information on restorative justice, the National Center on Restorative Justice regularly provides free webinars on various critical topics in restorative justice.
