Restorative Justice - Oak Park
Welcome to our group. Our emphasis is on establishing a Restorative Justice Program in Oak Park that repairs the harms caused by criminal behavior. We want to have cooperative processes that include all stakeholders and focuses on the needs of the victims, the offenders, and the involved community.
Restorative justice in Oak Park would be strengthened by aligned interest groups on this website: No Hunger and New Economy address hunger and strengthening our local economy. Thus they provide for youth local opportunities of apprenticeships, mentors, work and entrepreneurship.
“Try it, you’ll like it! “ Develop strategies to increase the use of TimeBanking: It’s time for us to use the many wonderful assets of all residents, increasing sharing of unmet needs and unused resources. A time bank can help us do that.
A time bank is a tool that matches individuals who have something to share (which is everyone) with individuals and organizations that have needs.
Join us to explore the assets and needs in OPRF that can be matched through TimeBanking and encourage residents to try it.
