The Black Parent Group invites your family to learn about RESTORATIVE JUSTICE-
“Every night, approximately 3 million children go to bed with a parent in prison or in jail.”
Many of us know all to well of the high incarceration rates among Black men. Restorative justice policies and programs are developing in Minnesota, come hear from Sharon Goens who will facilitate our meeting; explaining more about Healing and Restorative Justice vs. Traditional Imprisonment.
Restorative justice is a victim-centered response to crime that provides opportunities for those most directly affected by crime -the victim, the offender, their families, and representatives of the community - to be directly involved in responding to the harm caused by the crime.
Restorative justice emphasizes the importance of:
- Offering support and assistance to crime victims
- Holding offenders directly accountable to the people and communities they have violated
- Restoring the emotional and material losses of victims (to the degree possible); providing a range of opportunities
- Offering offenders opportunities for competency development and reintegration into productive community life.
