Restorative justice allows people, with the support of volunteers, to return to life beyond prison. Does it mean their lives are easy? No.
Does it mean people might be tempted to relapse into old ways? Without support, it is nearly always yes. But the Circles of Support and Accountability program across Canada has helped people to not reoffend and to live out their lives with no more crimes and therefore no more victims.
No more victims—this is the core of Restorative Justice work and this is the power of your gift in action.
