In Their Words will not only educate on the spectrum of restorative justice and its countless impacts, but also allow event-goers to understand how restorative justice is rooted in community. “[Restorative Justice] can be transformational for people, it can be transformational for communities and, all people coming together to support one vision is also transformational,” said Shalene Onyango, Executive Director, LCJP. 

For an impressive three decades, LCJP has been at the forefront of change, partnering with key local organizations, and touching the lives of over 15,000 people in Longmont with a proven track record of resolving instances of crime and conflict by utilizing a spectrum of restorative practices. LCJP’s Restorative Justice interventions equip individuals with the support and skills to take responsibility and repair harm, and give individuals who have been harmed a voice in seeking resolution. As a community-based organization LCJP relies on a strong community of supporters to continue our work.
