This special publication of Hope Magazine contains articles and other resources on restorative justice. One article(“Real Justiceâ€?) characterizes restorative justice as real justice; it describes restorative justice as a growing movement that brings offenders face-to-face with their victims, thus possibly preventing future crimes. Another article (“Crying for Justiceâ€?) tells how profound new healing can occur when victims in grief meet offenders in shame. Stories of actual crime victims and offenders illustrate the impact of crime and the potential in restorative ideas and processes to address the harm resulting from crime. Sidebars summarize steps in mediating victim-offender conflict and marks of restorative justice in action. Another sidebar lists a number of organizations to which one can go to get more information on restorative justice.
