What is “Restorative Justice” and How Does it Impact Individuals Involved in Crime?

This is a short piece I wrote for the U.S. Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) blog on restorative justice in the criminal justice context.

Fellow restorative justice advocates will know just how difficult (and often fraught) it is to answer the question “What is restorative justice?” This piece captures only a small portion of what restorative justice is and can be, but I hope it will serve as a helpful introduction to some of the basic tenets for those who are unfamiliar. Thank you to BJA for the opportunity!
