Communities for Restorative Justice (C4RJ) is a growing nonprofit that provides a powerful option within the justice system—for people, communities, and law enforcement alike.
Fall 2020 New Volunteer Training
We held our first ever C4RJ New Volunteer Virtual Training. It was a success! We had 30 participants join us from across the state, coming with a range of backgrounds in restorative justice ready to learn from each other. We are so pleased to welcome our new Boston and Western Mass volunteers!
Pathways to Restorative Communities
A C4RJ guide to restorative practices in schools is now available.
C4RJ is proud to announce the availability of A Restorative Practices Guide—How Schools Can Build Community and Address Conflicts. This guide is the culmination of a three-year grant to introduce Restorative Practices into Malden High School.
The intent of the guide is to provide an introduction to the use of restorative practices and to provide school personnel with a resource for designing and implementing these ideas. Our partner, Pathways to Restorative Communities, uses this guide in their work with schools and other organizations interested in learning about and incorporating Restorative Practices into their work.
