Promoting a local, restorative approach to crime in Vermont communities.
We are a collective of 17 Community Justice Centers throughout the state who share a common desire to broaden and strengthen Vermont’s restorative practices. Our work includes a wide spectrum of community-centered work that uses restorative practices as its foundation. We invite you to contact our individual centers and see how you can join us!
Restorative justice is a collaborative, inclusive process that aims to build understanding, encourage accountability, and provide an opportunity to make things right when harm has happened. We believe this approach can improve the well-being of communities by restoring peace and reducing the likelihood of repeated conflict and crime.
