Restorative Justice International (RJI) is announcing online training in Kenya on April 22, 2021 900 am Pacific/ 7pm Kenya. The focus of the training is to introduce in-prison restorative justice programming which brings crime victims to prisons to share their stories. Lisa Rea, President and Founder, Restorative Justice International will present on this subject discussing the model program, Sycamore Tree Project, which brings victims and offenders together to discuss crime and its effect. Lisa Rea directed the first Sycamore Tree Project, through Prison Fellowship International, in 1998 in a Texas medium security prison. Lisa has 25 years of experience in restorative justice nationally and globally.

RJI is an association and network of over 6500 members and affiliates around the global advocating for victims-driven restorative justice as a foundation for criminal justice reform. Through restorative justice comes healing for crime victims, and communities, while seeking to transform offenders after crime. Offender accountability is a key tenet of restorative justice.
