Justice Statement

At Restorative Partners, we believe that every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. We strive to provide intentional, inclusive, and trauma-informed services and programs that disrupt cycles of generational and systemic trauma. We will continue to center the voices of the most vulnerable and most marginalized members of our community.

We recognize the intersectionality of our mission – transforming lives impacted by crime through healing services and relationships – and the movements for racial and social justice. We acknowledge the generational trauma that mass incarceration has disproportionately inflicted on communities of color. We will continue to stand up and speak out against systems of oppression and we will continue to advocate for restorative pathways to healing, accountability, and community care.

We acknowledge that Restorative Partners is situated on the ancestral, traditional, and contemporary lands of the yak titʸu titʸu yak tiłhini Northern Chumash tribe. We honor the tribe's connection to these territories and respect the land on which we live and work.

Yours in solidarity,

The Restorative Partners Leadership Team and Staff
