What We Do

LCJP currently offers three unique, community-led restorative justice programs: Community Group Conferencing, RESTORE, and Restorative Theatre. Our programming centers on volunteer leadership and utilizes a strength-based approach to support accountability and repair. LCJP's work is firmly rooted in the "5 R's" of our founder, Dr. Beverly Title: respect, relationship, responsibility, repair, reintegration.

1) Community Group Conferencing
This restorative justice process offers an alternative to the Criminal Legal system by providing a space for victims and offenders to resolve crime through group dialogue involving community volunteers and local law enforcement. This pre-file program approach (meaning no criminal charges are ever filed against the offender if they successfully complete the program) transforms the traditional 'crime and control' model by reframing crime as an act that causes harm to relationships and violates trust, and can therefore be addressed through a process centered around accountability and active relationship repair.

2) RESTORE:
Available to both youth and adults this large group restorative process, RESTORE, supports pro-social accountability in repairing the harms of shoplifting in our community. Following a similar structure to the Community Group Conferencing model, RESTORE gives people the opportunity to be held accountable and use group dialogue to seek understanding and support healthy behavior change. This program was adapted from the City of Fort Collins original RESTORE model and receives referrals from corporations, local business and direct referrals from local Law Enforcement.

3) Restorative Theatre: "Your Story, Your Power"
In collaboration with an arts-based nonprofit, Mirror Image Arts, LCJP has joined the Restorative Arts community with our newest program, "Your Story, Your Power," - a restorative theatre workshop for youth (ages 12-18). Using image theatre and somatic practice, youth are invited to explore taking healthy risks, reflect on power and decision making all while breaking isolation and building relationships. The curriculum is designed for youth to be defined by more than their past choices, have the right to be the author of their own story, and ultimately reclaim their voice, their story, and their power. Youth referred from the Criminal Legal system, follow LCJP's pre-file program structure, and are additionally engaged in building a restorative justice contract (which is a collaborative process between the youth, their their parent/guardian and a trained program volunteer) which directly repair the harms caused by their decisions.

LCJP's Training Institute trains community volunteers to facilitate each of these restorative programs as well as providing a wide variety of restorative practices training to both our local and national community.
