About Us

Mass and static incarceration will not be solved unless we address that which we are most afraid to talk about: violence crime and life sentences. Our mission is to change the way society and the justice system respond to violence & harm

Our approach is unique. Our work falls broadly into three categories:

  • We support interpersonal restorative justice work using trauma-informed practices that enable proximity. This work is foundational to all that we do. It is anchored in self-reflection and the lived experience of our team.   
  • We facilitate multi-stakeholder dialogue with victims of crime, responsible parties and others to encourage healing both behind the walls and in the larger communities where we work and live.  
  • We amplify the voices of those who are most impacted, we do this through a combination of storytelling, formal media engagements
  • We advocate for policy reform and systems change that supports our mission. 

Finally, we don’t just preach proximity, we live it. We are human rights activists, attorneys, restorative justice practitioners, survivors of crime, free and incarcerated. Founded in 2017, Re:Store was born out of a desire to work collaboratively to address the harm perpetuated by our justice system and a commitment to be guided in our work by voices that are closest to the issues.
