The Community Justice Center (CJC) is the leading Restorative Justice practitioner and educator in the State of Nebraska.

 

We provide effective and evidence-based programming in all Nebraska Adult Correctional Institutions, Douglas County Jail, Nebraska communities, and with Nebraska Probation.

Our programs teach participants how to stop violence, how to take responsibility, how to develop emotional hygiene, how to understand victim impact and how to act restoratively. This work also exposes the larger social breakdowns of which these crimes are a symptom.

 

Our work:

-Elevates victim voices through our pioneering “surrogate” victim impact statements
-Reduces recidivism for increased public safety
-Reduces the collateral effects of crime on families and communities
-Models Restorative Justice and Restorative Living

-Advocates to reduce mass incarceration and its effects

 

Participants learn to:
Stop their Violent Behavior              Cultivate Restoration
Develop Emotional Hygiene            Understand Victim Impact
Be Responsible and Accountable for Themselves and their Harms

 

 

We recognize the harms caused and needs of those involved, holding those accountable for the harms to “put right” things as much as possible, and engaging victims, the offender, and the community in order to breed healing and restoration.

 

 

 

While Restorative Justice, in its strictest sense, applies to circumstances that involve a victim, offender, and the surrounding community, many elements of Restorative Justice can be applied to help forge, remedy, and sustain relationships between peoples in all areas of society, from schools to churches to neighborhoods. Our approach is grounded in the belief that ALL individuals-despite what they have done or what’s happened to them-are valued and worthy to be restored and made whole as much as possible.

 

We will continue our Restorative Justice work to: build safer communities, address the needs of all harmed by crime, reduce recidivism and contribute to a more cost effective criminal justice system.  We hope you continue to support our mission!

The Community Justice Story is Now a Book!

This quick read sheds insight into how the author’s choices influenced his life journey into cocaine addiction, violence, crime and eventually his incarceration. In prison, the author was given a powerful gift that changed his course in life. Jim shares that gift through an innovative program he created to address the needs of crime victims, offenders, and the community. He believes that by changing the wording within our criminal justice system, we can reduce crime. When a crime is committed we need to ask not only, “What laws were broken and how are we going to punish the offender?” but also, “What harm was done and who is responsible for repairing that harm?” Just by changing the language a little, offender’s accountability is realized much faster, and the needs of victims are elevated and addressed first, not as a secondary thought.
