Source: (2002) Paper presented at “Dreaming of a New Reality,” the Third International Conference on Conferencing,
Circles and other Restorative Practices, August 8-10, 2002, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

R.E.S.T.O.R.E. is a collaboration of the Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault, the Pima County Attorney’s Office and the University of Arizona. The R.E.S.T.O.R.E. program (a pretrial diversion program using a community conferencing model) was developed to increase access to judicial relief for victims of gender-linked sexual crimes and to improve system accountability by holding perpetrators accountable for their acts to the people and communities they have violated. The presentation will include information about program development; describe the conferencing stages, and discus the preliminary evaluation plan. Author’s abstract.
