Restorative justice is a process to involve those who have a stake in a specific offense and to collectively identify and address harms, needs, and obligations, in order for all involved to understand more about themselves and one another, as well as to work to correct racial disparities in the criminal justice system and deconstruct a system which currently discriminates against people of color and other marginalized populations. There are several models that have evolved from restorative justice philosophy, including family group conferencing, community boards, victim-offender mediation and circle sentencing.
These models share three primary goals:(1) To better include community members in the justice process.
(2) To identify and rectify harm caused by criminal offenses.(3) And/or to successfully reintegrate offenders into community life.

At CAPs 101, we covered the topics of climate change, climate action plans (CAPs)and how San Diego's CAP can help improve quality of life in City Heights.
Join us for CAPs 201, to take a deeper dive into the transportation and land use strategies that will help the City of San Diego reduce emissions in half by 2035. We’ll define terms typically used in climate planning such as “mode share,” “vehicle miles travelled,” and “transit priority areas.” We will also talk about how a city’s Climate Action Plan has implications at the regional level, at regional agencies like SANDAG. Join us for another night of learning centered around equitable climate planning in City Heights.
