Aloha & Welcome

Hawai`i Friends of Restorative Justice (HFRJ) continued to provide programs to help improve the justice system by giving individuals the opportunity to engage in civic processes to address healing and reconciliation when social injustice and wrongdoing occurs. HFRJ continued researching, writing and publishing about its projects in order to contribute to best practices and evidence based knowledge about what can help increase civic engagement and healing for individuals and communities.
