Southern California RJ Consortium

The Southern California RJ Consortium brings advocates and practitioners from higher education institutions, K12 school districts, community organizations, practitioners, and advocates together quarterly to:

  • Collaborate on scholarship and lessons learned to build efficacy by creating a strong network of Restorative Practices (RP) educators, advocates, and practitioners
  • Educate future generations of RP leaders for scholarship, practice, and implementation by increasing support for Restorative Practices in educational institutions
  • Research education and implementation processes to establish and disseminate lessons learned in the region
  • Create a regional model that can be replicated nationwide

Special thanks to the anonymous donor that helped launch the Southern California Restorative Practices Consortium with a generous grant to the CURes Restorative Justice (RJ) Project in 2020.
