RJ in Prison: Community Conversations

Pilot Programming for Prison
Community Conversations on Restorative Justice

Representatives of Hawai‘i Friends and past participants in Hawai‘i Friends restorative justice programs made a series of presentations between July 2006 and February 2007 at different public and private meetings on O‘ahu and Maui.

The nature of restorative justice and the possibilities of its use in the community were the subject of the presentations. Input from individuals at the meetings was collected on surveys.  Survey data confirmed the community’s overwhelming desire to see restorative justice used in Hawai`i’s criminal and prison systems.

The program was supported by a small grant from the Hawai‘i Justice Foundation.
