Restorative Justice Resources (RJR) will train 40 judicial mediators in Mexico in
the principles and practices of restorative justice.
The 30-hour training in the North-Central Mexican state of Guanajuato will focus
on how to work with victims and offenders of severe crimes, development of key
facilitation techniques and the creation of restorative justice programming.
During the past three years, Restorative Justice Resources has introduced
restorative justice to over 1,500 magistrates, judges, psychologists, attorneys,
students and prison inmates in Mexico.
Founded in 2006, Restorative Justice Resources is a nonprofit organization
headquartered in Santa Barbara, California. A restorative justice approach views
crime as a community problem that must be addressed with active community
participation in which offenders take responsibility for making amends and
healing the harm they have caused.
