Welcome to NACRJ

The National Association of Community and Restorative Justice promotes effective forms of justice that are safe, just, equitable, sustainable, reparative and socially constructive, addressing not only crime, but conflict, incivility, injustice and all forms of harm. NACRJ hosts the biennial National Conference of Community and Restorative Justice, and provides supports for members.

"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.

Our Condolences

To the Victims of the Attack in Nice, France

 Nice France Condolence 2016 RSD

July 16, 2016

Our hearts are once again broken by the staggering violence carried out in a terrorist inspired act. This time in Nice, France during Bastille Day celebrations in which 84 people were killed.  We are in solidarity with the victims, their families, the citizens of Nice, and all of France.  We are with you - you are in our thoughts and prayers.

We are commited to building safe, just, equitable and inclusive communities that are grounded in care, respect and dignity created through community and interpersonal dialogue.
