Restorative Justice Community Action

Restorative Justice Community Action (RJCA) is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing community-based restorative services throughout Hennepin County. Restorative justice is an approach that focuses on the needs of the victims, the wrongdoers and the involved communities to identify solutions that promote repair, reconciliation and rebuilding of relationships. RJCA brings residents and victims of Hennepin County and Minneapolis together with adults and youth who have committed crimes in their area. Together they participate in a “community conference”, an alternative sentencing option and restorative justice process that strengthens accountability and opens a line of communication between the offender and those harmed.
