Restorative Justice Handbook

February 25, 2022

Restorative justice practices are essential for Prison Fellowship International (PFI) to realize our vision of breaking the cycle of crime and restoring lives, worldwide, through Jesus’s love. Part of making this vision a reality involves strengthening our programs to make them more restorative in nature and promoting best practices that lead to restorative justice outcomes.

In this guide, we will provide an overview of restorative justice, discuss its central importance in PFI’s work, and outline a three-step process to increase the impact of our programs through restorative justice practices.
