The RIDE will happen as scheduled on Saturday, October 3, 2020! However, Covid-related health risks and operational challenges won't permit us to assemble in large groups. So instead, we'll gather virtually, self-organizing in smaller, covid-friendly teams or groups as permitted.
Let's keep our RIDE location communities going! Register for the same RIDE location as last year - or, if you are new, register in a location you're within an hour of.
Community Justice Initiatives Waterloo Region (CJI) is a non-profit organization known world-wide for starting the first modern Restorative Justice program.
Restorative Justice is a way of addressing conflict and crime that engages the person who caused the harm, people who were affected by the harm, and the community. During our 40+ year history, we have continuously responded to community needs by creatively, and innovatively applying restorative justice principles to new problems.
We believe the only limit to the power of restorative justice is the capacity of the human heart to change and grow. We provide conflict resolution services, support for people impacted by sexual haem, assistance for families involved with child protection, reintegration support for adults returning to the community from prison or custody, and integration support for newcomer Canadian youth.
