Mission Statement

Restorative Justice Initiative (RJI) is a citywide, multi-sector network of practitioners, advocates and community members seeking to increase support for, and access to, restorative justice approaches for all New Yorkers.

Description

Since 2015, Restorative Justice Initiative (RJI) has been educating, advocating and connecting New Yorkers who dream of new models for achieving justice, healing and accountability for harm (interpersonal and systemic). RJI convenes diverse stakeholders in order to foster collaboration and collective action across sectors to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline, end mass incarceration and create a more just and equitable city.

Restorative justice is a philosophy and practice-based on indigenous spirituality-that addresses harm and conflict by centering relationships. Restorative practices foster meaningful accountability through nuanced inquiry into the causes and conditions that engender harm, from the personal to the structural.
