When people hurt each other, relationships suffer – but they can be restored. MCC’s restorative justice work in the U.S. and around the world focuses on strengthening relationships based on respect and responsibility. MCC and its partners:
- Bring together people who have experienced harm or conflict to respectfully hear each other’s experiences and emotions. Together they agree on appropriate consequences.
- Provide trainings about living and working together in healthy, life-giving ways. This includes addressing conflict in churches, schools and communities.
- Train people on issues of oppression and colonization as part of the journey of restoring justice to Indigenous people.
