In Minnesota and elsewhere, advocates of restorative justice – a new way of thinking about crime and punishment – are embracing more creative, effective measures to reduce juvenile crime and delinquency. Young people in trouble, whether living in urban, rural, or suburban settings, are sitting down with their families and those they have hurt, taking responsibility for their actions, and helping to decide how they can best make amends for their behavior.
