The Benedict Center, a hub of criminal justice reform initiatives located in downtown Milwaukee, has always believed the best solutions are closest to the problems.
Built on a rock-hard foundation of restorative justice in 1974, our small interfaith criminal justice agency has stayed close to its own roots throughout its activist history. Community Justice, encompassing broad principles of restorative justice, was ushered in by the Benedict Center hand in hand with people from all parts of Milwaukee
in the mid 90’s. (excerpt)
