Restorative Justice Principles:

  • Provide a constructive framework to guide responses to crime, conflict, offensive behavior, violations and injustices.
  • Use restorative justice guidelines that repair damages, establish dignity and reintegrate all who were harmed and alienated.
  • Build communities with innovative philosophy that works equally well in our homes, schools, workplaces, churches, communities and justice system.
  • Respect all people.

Our Mission

"Kentucky Center for Restorative Justice (KCRJ) was founded in November, 2011 to build a dynamic and innovative social and restorative justice center to provide legal support for criminal and civil cases and to provide conflict resolution services for communities, schools and the justice system. KCRJ also focuses on poverty, immigration and human rights. 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)
