The city of Aurora has contracted The Conflict Center—a nonprofit dedicated to providing practical skills and training to address conflict through relationship building—to help research and develop a plan for a restorative justice program for the city by June 30, 2023.

The city expects to achieve several important goals through the implementation of restorative justice practices, including:

  • Increase the sense of safety and security within neighborhoods and community
  • Improve cohesion of neighborhoods
  • Reduce the harms associated with criminal justice involved with specific offenses identified through the research process
  • Empower victims to participate in addressing the harms suffered by themselves and their community

At-large Council Member Curtis Gardner sponsored this effort in May 2021, with At-large Council Member Angela Lawson and former At-large Council Member Allison Hiltz as co-sponsors, and received unanimous support from City Council. The city would be responsible for implementing the plan with city council approval.

This webpage will provide updates throughout the research process and promote ways the community can participate.

For questions throughout the research process, please email info@conflictcenter.org or call 303.433.4983
