Restorative Justice Partners, Inc. provides support and education to those affected by conflict to encourage accountability, reparation, and empathy.
Idea: Restorative Justice Partners, Inc. (RJP) provides support and education to those affected by conflict to encourage accountability, reparation and empathy. There are crucial equity, public health and budget conversations happening regarding RJP’s many partners, which include law enforcement agencies, public school systems and other nonprofit organizations. The organization hopes that their Big Idea, Justice Heals, can provide Monterey County communities support and education to avail themselves of restorative justice principles and to bring healing to those in conflict. The objective of RJP is to work with partners to create environments to ensure youth feel respected, are able to learn from their mistakes, develop and express an authentic voice, and utilize their newly-developed skills when confronted with future challenges.
The language of restorative justice – circles, healing, mediation, connectedness, respect agreements, etc. – is soothing, and I think we tend to forget that those compassionate approaches handle real problems.
