 More about Community Justice:

IMG_0422.JPG

Justice for low income, marginalized, and disenfranchised neighborhoods is often seen through a “criminal” lens. This limits justice to be achieved in courtrooms and prisons through punishment, or an act of revenge. Poor and disenfranchised residents typically reside within neighborhoods that are excluded from the larger community. They are often labeled as perpetrators of crime, while accepting the inevitability of crime as victims. Data is used to reaffirm stereotypes of who these community residents are, what their needs are, and what resources are sufficient to meet their needs. Conditions that exist within these neighborhoods lead to or perpetuate crime and incarceration. Largely forgotten by the larger community, residents experience injustice on a day to day basis. These injustices show up in education, employment, housing, and are reflected in the governing laws and policies that further remove them from participating in or contributing to the outcome of their quality of life.

RPCP’s Vision for Community Justice:

RPCP believes in communities that are based on justice, equality, mutuality and stewardship. RPCP envisions alliances where structural violence and inequities are addressed through a restorative process led by community residents to create sustainable development and peace.

Mission of the Neighborhood Justice Project:

The Neighborhood Justice Project is a community led organizing tool used to identify, resist and repair injustice and empower residents with the capacity, tools, resources, and relationships to shift power dynamics that exist within their communities that perpetuate and cause injustice.
