Policy Position Statements

The National Association of Community and Restorative Justice is an association of practitioners and academicians concerned with sound, evidence-based public policy on justice related issues. The association seeks to inform policy makers and to educate the public about the potential of non-traditional forms of justice to produce safer and more livable neighborhoods for residents and their surrounding communities. In this context the NACRJ will speak to public policy issues with policy position statements and letters, making them publicly accessible on our NACRJ website.
