Justice and Reconciliation Project

From Cornell Law Library's InSite electronic
newsletter (June 6, 2006):

Justice and Reconciliation Project

"Founded in California in 2001, the Justice and
Reconciliation Project (JRP) is a national nonprofit
organization dedicated to restoring the lives of those
harmed by crime by promoting forgiveness and
reconciliation between crime victims and offenders,
and by supporting restorative justice policies in the legal
system. The Project’s “Activities” section details the
organization’s projects and campaigns, such as the
“Victims' Voices Project,” “In-Prison Projects,”
“Violence Prevention,” “Clergy Sexual Abuse Cases,”
and “Rwanda 1994 Genocide.”

The organization also offers an online magazine, JRP Online
Magazine, available in HTML. Visitors to the site can also
read about the organization’s media buzz in the “Media
Coverage” section. The site is searchable."
