A Diversion Toolkit for Communities was primarily created for community-based organizations interested in building pre-charge restorative justice diversion (RJD) programs that reduce youth criminalization while meeting the needs of people harmed. The Restorative Justice Project at Impact Justice created this resource in response to the stream of requests from people across the United States who are eager to launch their own restorative justice diversion programs.
