But at RJI, we are committed to sustaining an ecosystem for many types of restorative practices in NYC to spread. This means supporting dozens of organizations and hundreds of local restorative justice leaders.

Restorative Justice Initiative is offering two community building circles for our network on Grief and Grieving.
I believe that circles can be a powerful space in which Americans can build trust and connection with one another, affirm their core values and enhance their understanding of racism, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia and other forces that are deployed to tear our communities apart. Perhaps most importantly, circles can also be a space in which we learn how to take action to counter these forces and foster a culture of belonging in the communities where we live and work.
