Restorative justice is a collaborative, inclusive process that aims to build understanding, encourage accountability, and provide an opportunity for healing. We believe this approach can improve the well-being of communities by restoring peace and reducing the likelihood of repeated conflict and crime.

At the Community Justice Network of Vermont, we strive to broaden and strengthen Vermont’s restorative practices through our statewide membership of community justice centers (CJCs). We are committed to supporting our members through education, outreach, legislative advocacy, data collection, program development, training, and technical assistance. Our work focuses on sharing and implementing best practices for restorative justice by providing opportunities for members to consult with and learn from one another.
Dear friend of CJNVT,
We are heartened at the growing interest in restorative justice in Vermont and around the country and are inspired by the local work in each of the communities of our twenty justice centers. Meanwhile, we are in the midst of reorganizing our structure at the Community Justice Network of Vermont and for the time being, will not be staffed with paid personnel. However, the work continues strong at all of our CJC’s and you are always welcome to reach out to the CJC nearest you with questions about community and restorative justice, volunteering, or anything else. That list can be found (here). If you are coming from outside of Vermont, feel free to contact Carol Plante at firstname.lastname@example.org.
