Mission is to put the neighbor back into our neighborHOOD by empowering our diverse communities to create our own solutions to neighborhood problems through the use of restorative justice practices.
The Council uses a multifaceted grassroots approach which includes policy change, youth advocacy, and community action to heal and repair relationships.
We work from a model of self-determination to move past restoring the status-quo by bringing a commitment to address structural violence as well and inter-personal harm. The council has four robust areas of work including: monthly community “Peace n’ Justice” walks, Restorative Justice Block Party Project, Alternative Sentencing for Youth, and Community Healing Circles.
