“Respect reminds us of our interconnectedness...If we pursue justice as respect, we will do justice restoratively.” —Howard Zehr, The Little Book of Restorative Justice

Through collaboration between stakeholders in schools and prisons – with a particular focus on including the voices of students and parents from the community – RJCH plans conferences and provides networking opportunities for Houstonians interested in bringing a new model of justice to their school or institution.
“Restorative justice is a theory of justice that emphasizes repairing the harm caused or revealed by unjust behavior. Restoration is best accomplished through inclusive and cooperative processes.” – RJ City
