Organizations We're Investing In

Our grantee. Restorative Justice Institute of Maine fosters restorative justice practices and philosophy across the State of Maine.

Their concern. Survivors of sexual assault need healing and justice.

We're helping. We provided $5,000 in project support and helped find an additional $5,000 from another funder so they could create a survivor centered and survivor led process over four sessions and one retreat. They gathered to share space, knowledge, wisdom, and experiences with 17 survivors in southern and central Maine to strategize a way to address sexual violence within Restorative/Transformative Justice. They are now ready to launch their pilot program this year in collaboration with community members directly impacted by sexual harm and their spectacular Survivor Leaders!

We've learned. Restorative Justice Institute of Maine's work drew on the existing restorative/transformative practices of m arginalized communities, including Indigenous Communities, Communities of Color, and LGBTQ+ Communities.
