Restorative justice offers satisfaction to victims, hope to offenders, and restoration to the wider community. It is simple and it is profoundly spiritual - a way of living out the way God ordered the world: for restoration, wholeness, connection, and community.

We can learn restorative practices that will transform our homes, churches and communities. We can work for restorative justice to become the way our countries handle crime and punishment.

Check out our Get Involved page for ways your church can learn more about restorative practices and for ways to advocate for criminal justice or explore the rest of these pages to keep digging in.
