What We Do
On March 29, 2007 then Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, signed into law HB 07-1129 which established the Colorado Restorative Justice Coordinating Council (RJ Council) within the State Court Administrator’s Office (SCAO) of the Colorado Judicial Branch. The law enumerates several specific items of responsibility for the RJ Council which includes, to the extent resources permit:
• To serve as a central repository for information;
• To support the development of RJ programs;
• To assist with education and training; and
• To provide technical assistance as needed.
The law also defined the membership of the RJ Council and the appointing authority, which originally included 9 appointed members and has since expanded to 19 members
