The Erie County Restorative Justice Coalition promotes social and racial justice by partnering with others to create environments where children, youth, and adults can live, learn, work, play and thrive.  We envision a community that harnesses the voices, strengths, and capabilities of the people through relationship building and community dialogue.

Restorative Practices emphasize strong positive relationships build strong, positive communities. When there's a breakdown in those relationships, Restorative Practices offers processes that encourage accountability to repair harm. 


We work for this vision by

Training community members, organizations, and schools in Restorative Practices
