VIDEO ENCORE: The Role of Restorative Justice in Criminal Justice Reform

With the protests and civil unrest that has swept the nation, Philadelphia was no stranger in dealing with criminal justice and police brutality issues. As a result, Philadelphia police arrested over 700+ individuals. With COVID-19 causing a significant backlog of criminal cases, legal groups coalesced to develop a program to deal, specifically, with the protest related cases. A Restorative Justice Model was developed in order to deal with these protest cases in a fair and equitable way. 

This video-encore CLE will discuss what Restorative Justice means generally and examine the new Philadelphia Restorative Justice Model in detail. Panelists will explore how it may work to improve the criminal justice system. Additionally, this CLE will address the details concerning the rollout of a Juvenile Restorative Justice Model that will be implemented in Philadelphia later this year.

Attend this video-encore program to learn what “Restorative Justice” means and how the implementation of this model approach to justice may work to improve Philadelphia criminal justice practices.
