Viewing Justice through a Transformative and Restorative Lens
The current punitive criminal justice system takes control, responsibility, healing, and accountability away from victims and offenders and instead gives them a powerless and victimizing experience. Transformative goes beyond the classic victim and offender relationship, which restorative justice examines, by analyzing systems of domination that foster oppression such as racism and classism. Transformative and restorative justice is rooted in community involvement and accountability and promotes healing.
We hope you will join us for a day filled with dynamic restorative justice practitioners in conversations that center on shifting the perspective and how we can move forward in viewing justice through a restorative lens.
