Restorative Justice Resources (RJR) will train 40 judicial mediators in Mexico in

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.

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.
