The Sociology Department and Center for Restorative Programs (CRP) are presenting the SLV Restorative Justice Summit on November 7 through November 9. The event is free and open to the public.
This three-day event invites institutional leaders, professionals, service providers, and community members to engage with national RJ experts, hear RJ success stories, and brainstorm action plans for integrating RJ into the San Luis Valley.
Restorative Justice (RJ) is an approach to crime and wrongdoing that engages victims, offenders, and their affected communities. RJ is cost effective, results in high rates of victim satisfaction, and has been shown to reduce typical recidivism rates among juvenile offenders by greater than 50 percent in national studies.
To learn more about the summit, please call CRP at 719-589-5255 or visit restorativeprograms.org.
