Restorative justice is a collaborative approach to repairing harm caused by crime. Approaches often include facilitated discussions between those who caused harm and the victims and communities who suffered as a result of the harm. The restorative justice process builds resiliency by incorporating principles of empowerment into the resolution process.
This virtual symposium from the Pennsylvania Office of Victim Advocate will examine restorative justice principles and practices and explore community trauma and community healing. Hear from members of the community who have been impacted by the criminal justice system. Restorative justice embraces the cornerstone of justice, which is: all people have inherent value and life itself embodies the possibility of change.
