Restorative justice programs are on the rise across the country. The practice facilitates meetings between victims, offenders, and community members, in order to repair some of the harm caused by crime. Now, a group of volunteers in Casper is looking for ways to incorporate practices of restorative justice into the legal system.
Wyoming Public Radio’s Maggie Mullen spoke with Jen Miner, the Chairwoman of the newly formed Natrona County Restorative Justice Board. The Restorative Justice Symposium is set for March 16 and 17 at the Ramkota Hotel in Casper.
