Unlocking Justice: The Red Hook Community Justice Center

Justice requires more than reactive enforcement of law. It also requires proactive prevention strategies that repair problems, heal past harms, and improve quality of life - particularly in high crime neighborhoods. Meaningful and effective forms of justice are increasingly recognized as relational.

The Red Hook Community Justice Center in Brooklyn, NY has been in operation for about 20 years. It has helped make the area safer and more livable for residents and businesses. The following video depicts how a community-based treatment court, using relational justice strategies, can help people get their lives back on track and the community address problems in ways that improve both safety and quality of life.
