Welcome to NACRJ

The National Association of Community and Restorative Justice (NACRJ) employs principles of social and restorative justice seeking transformation in the ways justice questions related to injustice, incivility, conflict, crime and harm are addressed. It promotes effective forms of justice that are safe, just, equitable, sustainable, reparative and socially constructive.  NACRJ serves as the parent organization for the biannual National Conference on Community and Restorative Justice.  It provides supports for members as well as the field by making information, resources and networking opportunities readily available.

"Shaping Justice for the 21st Century"

Vision

We envision a safe and equitable world where restorative interactions transform individuals, relationships, communities and systems through the prevention, repair and deep healing of harm.

Mission

We advance community and restorative justice as a social movement by serving people and organizations committed to building community and addressing harm.  NACRJ provides guidance and support to establish high quality practices with fidelity to restorative principles.

National Conferences

The upcoming 7th NACRJ Conference in Denver (June 14-16, 2019) now has a special Cvent website with all primary information and online registration. This includes keynote speakers and performers that are confirmed. Information is also on our own Conference 2019 webpage.

Meanwhile, our 6th NACRJ Conference held in Oakland, CA (2017) still has recordings of keynotes, interviews, and photos that you can see and hear on our website.

In 2021, the 8th NACRJ Conference will be held in Chicago, IL. We look forward to being in Chi-Town.
