Statement of Fact:
"The R.O.L. Initiative2019" seeks to maintain a ground focus on Personal and Urban Societal healing. Much like Restorative Justice, "The R.O.L. Initiative2019" aims to discover how the PEOPLE identified as Community Members/Victim(s)/Survivor(s) in and of Urban communities have been harmed and how the Responsible Person(s)/Offender(s) (i.e. Institutions, Organizations, Systems, Practices or Persons) and their/his/her Family/Associate Partnership(s)/Affiliate(s)/etc. have been Impacted also.
Upon discovering the harms and the impact it's had, the Restorative Justice philosophy then explores the needs of all Justice Participants/Community Members involved in order for reparations to be made. This process relies in part on the sincere accountability from the responsible persons (i.e. Institutions, Organizations, Systems, Practices or Persons).
The Restorative Justice core values are Respect, Care, Trust and, Humility. In a restorative approach, justice seeks to amend, restore, and heal impacted relationships. Therefore, "The R.O.L. Initiative2019" holds firm the honor of Restorative Justice Practice(s)/Philosophies.
THE R.O.L. (RE-DEFINING OUR LEADERSHIP) INITIATIVE:
