Friends of Restorative Justice

Vision Statement

FoRJ Logo

To raise community awareness of restorative justice, particularly Victim-Offender Conferencing (VOC), and strengthen public safety through community building.

To invite community participation in the justice process, with VOC as a new community practice seeking to repair the harm caused by youth crime and restore relationships affected by such crime.

To provide VOC for those directly affected by youth crime: the victim(s), the offender(s), their families, and the representatives of the affected communities.

To develop an array of other restorative justice models to serve different offender groups in the future.
