WEBINAR – A Personal Journey to Find Meaningful Justice for Sexual Harm

Marlee identified as the receiver of harm from sexual violence. She chose restorative justice after finding the criminal legal system wanting. The criminal legal system asks what law has been broken, who broke it and what is the punishment. RJ asks what harm was done, who was harmed and how do we repair it. Let’s find out how Marlee thinks about healing, forgiveness, trauma, shame, stigma, and wellness.

Crime Survivors Speak

This is the first-ever national survey of victims views on crime and safety. Attached, is a two page executive summary and key findings.

Two of the most interesting outcomes of the study were: (1) By a 2 to 1 margin, victims prefer that the criminal justice system focus more on rehabilitating people who commit crimes than punishing them. (2) Crime victims want to invest in youth crime prevention over prisons by a 7 to 1 margin.
