Restorative Justice & Practices

The Peace Alliance and Board Member Molly Rowan Leach are thrilled to announce the Fall Kickoff of the Restorative Justice Telecouncil Series and the workings of a longer term Resource area and collaborative network for those working in RJ and related fields and for those inspired by the growing movement who want to find out more. TPA recognizes that Restorative Justice is moving fast in the U.S. as an answer to punitive and corporate-motivated criminal justice systems. The mission of the series and the growing resources and network areas of this subsection is to augment education, spark dialogue, connect organizations and individuals, and ultimately make the RJ movement stronger and more visible both in the US and beyond.


 This group is for sharing resources, discussing information, and inspiring networking and collaboration via the power of virtual channels.

Non-violence is a very deep philosophy. Not only does it require me to harm no one physically, but also to avoid harming anyone's self-respect. Such an ethic requires tremendous awareness and sensitivity. When I have learned to be gentle with myself, I can be the same with others.

I'm interested in connecting with people who are using restorative justice practices with people labeled with mental health diagnoses who are accused of crimes, and who understand that forced or incentivized participation in mental health services is not the answer but is part of the problem.  For information on my background and interests, please see and see the materials under "Prison Issues" on the Resources page.
