Our Restorative Justice (Our RJ) provides at-risk and high-risk youth and young adults with an alternative approach to justice that disrupts the cradle to prison pipeline.
As a model for the future of justice in Massachusetts, Our Restorative Justice (Our RJ) seeks to transform the way the justice system impacts young people and their communities. Criminality is more efficiently and effectively addressed in and by the community to meet the needs of those harmed, their community and the wider society. Restorative practices empower youth to continue their education and move toward the workforce, strengthen families and build robust communities, while reducing taxpayer costs.
Definition of Restorative Justice:
Restorative justice seeks to build partnerships to reestablish mutual responsibility for constructive responses to wrongdoing within our communities.
