I believe in restorative justice. I believe it to be a process that, if honestly engaged, offers an individual (whether that individual be a concerned member of the community, a victim or the offender), the ability to transform life for the better. Within this essay,I will explore how becoming involved with a Circle of Support and Accountability (CoSA), offers people the ability to restoratively transform life for the better.
