Restorative Justice - Program for Youth and Adults: A-Z How it's done
Seema Gajwani will speak about the use of Restorative Justice in Washington DC to address serious, violent crime and bring about better outcomes for victims of crime and those who commit crime. Ms. Gajwani founded and runs the Restorative Justice Program housed within the Washington DC’s Office of the Attorney General.

The program offers restorative justice as an alternative to traditional prosecution for victims of serious violent crime committed by juveniles in DC. The Program has had success at resolving cases in lieu of traditional prosecution and is expanding to adult crime and cases in a post adjudication status in the coming year. Ms. Gajwani will describe the details of restorative justice and how its use has been effective with serious crime in Washington, DC.
