The Red Hook Peacemaking Program

Produced by the Center for Court Innovation

Peacemaking is a traditional Native American approach to justice that focuses on healing and restoration rather than punishment. This video shares the experiences of those involved in an experiment at the Red Hook Community Justice Center to adapt peacemaking to a community in Brooklyn, N.Y. The video includes impressions from the Justice Center's presiding judge, volunteer peacemakers, and those who have resolved their conflicts through the program.
