We hope you have enjoyed our infographic series and have found them to be informative, inspiring and engaging. If you are interested in learning more about restorative justice or becoming involved in restorative justice here are a few places to start:
- 1. Volunteer! There are many small local programs running across Canada (and the U.S.). Many of these programs require volunteers to operate. Find out what programs are offered in your area.
- 2. Organize! Organize an educational event or a discussion group in your community, parish or workplace. If you would like to arrange a speaker please contact us at info (@) ccjc.ca we have a network of members and volunteers all across the country.
- 3. Write! Write your local, provincial or federal government. Take an opportunity to tell them what you think and the kind of justice system you would like to see in Canada.
- 4. Talk! Talking with friends and family about more restorative ways of dealing with harm begins the process of questioning whether our current system is really addressing the problem. Consider a restorative approach to conflicts that might arise among friends or family. Change starts with each one of us.
