Justice is a broad concept. While it encompasses formal justice systems, in its broadest sense “justice” refers to basic concepts of fairness in relations - balance, equity, fair exchange, harmony, equal treatment, mutual respect and dignity. Justice encompasses how we live together in peace with dignity and respect for one another despite our differences. It encompasses how we respond to harms and address inequities and injustice. It includes how our institutions relate to us, individually and collectively, in respectful and constructive ways. The 7th NACRJ focuses on elevating this broader meaning of justice by intentionally widening the circle of engagement in meaningful ways that welcome the voices of victims, formerly incarcerated, LGTBQ, racial, ethnic minorities and others as we promote safe, just, equitable and sustainable communities, institutions in the US and around the world.
