What Is Restorative Justice?

February 25, 2022

Prison Fellowship supports and promotes restorative justice reforms in the justice system. Restorative justice is an approach to understanding and responding to crime. In terms of understanding crime, restorative justice theory emphasizes crime as harm to people, relationships, and communities. In terms of responding to crime, restorative justice practice focuses on repairing the harm inflicted by crime on people, relationships, and communities, and on giving those directly affected by the crime the opportunity to determine what that repair will look like.
