Restorative Justice (RJ) is a framework that focuses on the harm caused, not the criminal statute. RJ allows the voices of survivors to be privileged. We must listen to people who have experienced sexual harm speak about the short and long term effects of trauma and we must make the topic of sexual violence and victimization less taboo. We must also give individuals who have committed sexual harm the opportunity to hear from and share with those who have experienced victimization. This can bring about true accountability.
As a survivor, I have met with over 350 men and women who have committed acts of sexual abuse, harassment, or violence. Using a restorative justice framework I approach these conversations with vulnerability and authenticity.
As a restorative justice practitioner, I facilitate face-to-face RJ sessions with individuals who have experienced sexual abuse and the individual who committed the abuse.
