Since 1996, the Restorative Justice Exchange (RJE) has created programs, advocated for systemic reform, aggregated benchmarks and best practices in prison reform, and worked to expand knowledge about restorative justice. Formerly known as the “Centre for Justice and Reconciliation,” RJE is a powerful entity that serves scholars, researchers and practitioners in the restorative justice space through its offerings and publications. We promote restorative justice practitioners, especially those focused on offenders, and seek the adoption of best practices that increase the restorative nature of everything we undertake.
As an initiative of Prison Fellowship International (PFI), we help PFI’s indigenous, autonomous partners in more than 100 countries around the globe advance timeless principles and best practices of justice and reconciliation in their criminal justice systems. This grassroots presence enables ministry to prisoners and their families in culturally relevant ways, in partnership with 46,000 local volunteers.
We support our national ministry partners through program partnerships, strategic funding and leadership training, among a variety of other services focused on building capacity to enhance restorative justice and deepen impact.
While operating within the Christian tradition, we find common ground and collaborate with people from all backgrounds and traditions.
Your donation helps Prison Fellowship International repair the harm caused by crime by emphasizing accountability, forgiveness, and making amends for prisoners and those affected by their actions. When victims, offenders, and community members meet to decide how to do that, the results are transformational.Donate Now
