The National Association of Community and Restorative Justice (NACRJ) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  The association and its members are dedicated to advancing theory, practice and research on models of relational justice as reparative approaches with the potential to meaningfully address harms, injustice and persistent inequities that confront modern society.

NACRJ applies principles of social justice, community justice and restorative justice seeking transformation in the ways justice questions and issues are addressed in our communities and our lives.  It promotes effective forms of justice that are equitable, sustainable and socially constructive responses to conflicts, incivilities, and crimes.  It is the parent organization for the biannual conference of the National Association of Community and Restorative Justice.  We provide our members with information applicable to restorative and community justice theory and practice.  NACRJ advocates for changes in public policy that support or promote broader application of community and restorative justice.  Examples of policy advocacy can be found on our website home page under the "Policies" tab.

This year, at our 6th NACRJ Conference in Oakland, CA over 1,300 people, from across the nation and several other countries, came together to learn from one another and share a different vision of how to address justice issues in the 21st Century.  Go to the "2017 Conference" page to see conference photos or listen to keynote presentations.
