Who Makes up the Community in a Community Restorative Justice Process?
The Community Restorative Justice (CRJ) processes are unique because they are led by trained volunteer Facilitators and include representation by trained volunteer community members. The community members represent the local Longmont community voice and are responsible for identifying harms done by the offenders as well as suggesting potential contract items that can be carried out by the offender to repair these harms. The community members, as well as all of the participants shown in the graphic below, have an equal voice in the process. This means that they are all invited to share their ideas and opinion freely and respectfully. It also means that no agreements are final until all participants sign off on the final contract at the end of the process.
