Join the R Street Institute for an enlightening virtual panel that explores the transformative power of restorative justice to encourage healing and promote public safety. The discussion will delve into the profound impact this approach has on victims and justice-involved youth alike, illuminating how restorative justice can foster healing, increase accountability and build stronger, more harmonious communities. Our panel features an extraordinary lineup of speakers, each bringing a unique perspective designed to engage criminal justice professionals, policymakers, academics, and anyone with a vested interest in promoting a more equitable and restorative justice system. These experts will unpack the history and benefits of restorative justice, highlighting how it goes beyond punishment to address the needs of those who have been harmed, while simultaneously rehabilitating those who caused the harm. Together, we will envision the potential for restorative practices to revolutionize the juvenile justice system.
