What Is Restorative Justice?
Restorative justice offers alternatives to our traditional juvenile and criminal justice systems and harsh school discipline processes. Rather than focusing on punishment, restorative justice seeks to repair the harm done. At its best, through face-to-face dialogue, restorative justice results in consensus-based plans that meet victim-identified needs in the wake of a crime. This can take many forms, most notably conferencing models, victim-offender dialogue, and circle processes. In applications with youth, it can prevent both contact with the juvenile justice system and school expulsions and suspensions. Restorative justice also holds the potential for victims and their families to have a direct voice in determining just outcomes, and reestablishes the role of the community in supporting all parties affected by crime. Several restorative models have been shown to reduce recidivism and, when embraced as a larger-scale solution to wrongdoing, can minimize the social and fiscal costs of crime."

... "Today, NCCD is leading efforts to institutionalize this and other restorative justice alternatives to juvenile and adult incarceration and zero-tolerance school discipline policies across California and the nation.

Finding other ways to reduce crime and seeing results on the restorative justice is a good thing. Seeing that the restorative justice can have an affect and showing that it is effective is important. Because it actually shows and supports that there are more ways to handle things and making it a little bit easier to understand what is going on. The RJC is doing a good job and I think that the point of it is to make it more well known.
