Restorative Justice projects gather momentum in Colorado

Colorado has recently put restorative justice on a legal footing with the signing into law of the Colorado House Bill 1254. The restorative justice bill is focused on juvenile cases and aims to expand on state programmes adopted over the past six years, including establishing pilot programs and creating a database of information. The huge potential of restorative justice in the community and schools was highlighted by partnerships such as the Longmont Community Restorative Justice Project in Colorado which has two programmes that address conflict resolution and criminal matters both in the community and in schools.
