Give to the Restorative Justice Project: Goal $50,000
The CNVC Restorative Justice Project aims to support dialogue and mutual learning between the NVC and Restorative Justice (RJ) communities, in the service of developing compassionate justice systems and effective means for increasing community safety. Over the last 4 years the practical application of NVC to restorative practices has been presented to many in the Restorative Justice community for the first time. A specific approach to conferencing - in which those normally considered victims, offenders and members of the community come together in the wake of crime or disagreement - has been developed and widely applied in the court, education, prison and social services community in Brazil. Called Restorative Circles, this work - developed by Dominic Barter, and guided by NVC - is now being shared and applied internationally. Support the Restorative Justice Project ».
