Coalitions cover any collaborative group that serves multiple RJ programs or agencies in a given geographical area (states, state, counties, county). By definition, coalitions do not provide direct restorative services to people, as they operate at a higher, wider networking level.

(b) train facilitators to provide the services necessary;
(c) educate the community about restorative justice, its uses and its benefits; and
(d) foster policies that enhance opportunities for restorative justice to be implemented.
The Virginia Center for Restorative Justice will encourage respect and mutual empowerment in the community and demonstrate effective, evidenced-based, restorative practices.
