Implementing Restorative Justice in Texas’ Juvenile Justice System

In Texas, when a youth inflicts harm on others, the response is often driven by law enforcement and the larger criminal justice system: arrest, then place under supervision or warehouse in a corrections facility.  Restorative justice provides those harmed, those who inflicted the harm, and community members the opportunity to share their perspectives about what occurred, voice what they consider to be “justice” in their unique situation, and work together toward a resolution.
