Conversation About Crime Survivors and Restorative Justice Issues

November 03, 2021
The Sentencing Project and national victim/survivor advocate Anne Seymour sponsored a virtual conversation to address the critical issue of restorative justice practices both pre- and post-conviction. The goal of the conversation was to identify strategies that can more wholly address the needs of survivors, those who harm them, and the communities in which they reside.

The Sentencing Project works to promote effective and humane responses to crime that minimize imprisonment and criminalization by promoting racial/ethnic, economic and gender justice. Increasingly, crime survivors and those who assist them are critical partners in efforts to promote meaningful justice reforms, equitable access to services for survivors, crime prevention strategies including access to mental health care and community-based violence interruption initiatives, and restorative justice.
