"Kentucky Center for Restorative Justice (KCRJ) was founded in November, 2011, to build a dynamic and innovative social and restorative justice center using community and restorative justice process in the courts, schools, prisions, and communties. Using education, litigation, restorative processes and other forms of advocacy and collaboration, the Center works toward the day when the ideal of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality. KCRJ works to eliminate hate and bigotry and seeks justice for the most vulnerable citizens of Kentucky." (Diana Queen, Founder)
