Connecting our circles of responsibility for community.
Alberta Restorative Justice Association (ARJA) is composed of organizations and individuals dedicated to increasing understanding of restorative justice and how it can benefit communities. ARJA encourages community action that strengthens existing restorative justice programs and encourages the development of new restorative justice programs in communities in Alberta.
ARJA's website is designed to make resources, materials and information related to the field of restorative justice available to all areas of Alberta.
What is Restorative Justice?
Restorative Justice is an approach focused on repairing harm when a wrongdoing or injustice occurs in a community. Depending on the process or technique used, restorative justice involves the victim, the offender, their social networks, justice agencies, and the community.Above all, restorative justice is an invitation to join in conversation so that we may support and learn from each other. It is a reminder that all of us are indeed interconnected.(Howard Zehr,The Little Book of Restorative Justice, p. 63.)
