What is Restorative Justice?

Restorative Justice (RJ) is a framework that focuses on the harm caused, not the criminal statute. RJ allows the voices of survivors to be heard. We must make the topic of sexual violence and victimization less taboo. We must also give individuals who have committed sexual harm the opportunity to share with those who have experienced victimization. This can bring about true accountability, healing and restoration to all.

RJ allows us to lean in to the hard conversations. It is messy, tough and personal. It is also rewarding and just.
