Restorative Justice Project: What Does it Mean to Repair the Harm

November 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Reentry Coordinator Michelle Moschkau will speak at the Camden Public Library on Tuesday, November 7 at 7:00 pm. 

Restorative Justice: what does it mean to repair the harm?
 
Restorative justice is both a philosophy and a way of practicing justice, that emphasizes repairing the harm caused by criminal behavior. It gives those impacted a voice to express how they’ve been impacted and what needs to be done to repair the harm. 
 
Join us for a conversation about restorative justice. We’ll spend some time exploring the history, philosophy, and practical applications of restorative justice. We’ll also share what’s happening locally with the Restorative Justice Project of the Midcoast.

Formed in February 2005, The Restorative Justice Project of the Midcoast provides restorative conferences for adult and juvenile offenders in Knox. Waldo. Lincoln and Sagadahoc Counties and an array of restorative justice services for the Maine Coast Regional Reentry Center and for K-12 schools. The focus on offender accountability, coupled with a focus on the impact of the offense on the victim and community, has significantly decreased recidivism, healed the harm done to victims, and transformed lives with understanding and meaningful community connections. Since 2005, the RJP has joined the international restorative justice movement, with its mission to promote fundamental change in the justice system and schools. Our responses to crime and wrongdoing seek: Renewal and safety for the community, Support and healing for the victims, Accountability and reintegration for the offender into the community.
