RJI Builds Community
“When I am contacted by people who want to know what is going on in New York and want to connect to practitioners there, I always refer them to Restorative Justice Initiative. RJI has played an important role in connecting and convening people interested in restorative justice. I am so grateful that RJI exists!”
– Kay Pranis,
nationally recognized restorative justice leader,
trainer and author of multiple books on peacemaking circles.

What is restorative justice?
is a set of principles and practices rooted in indigenous societies. Restorative justice can be applied both reactively in response to conflict and/or crime, and proactively to strengthen community by fostering communication and empathy.
