In the Movement podcast with Central Virginia Community Justice

Central Virginia Community Justice is a restorative justice diversion program based out of Charlottesville, VA. They provide a “brave space for those involved in harm to lead their own accountability and healing.” CVCJ acts as a restorative alternative to the standard, punitive path of the criminal legal system. Hear from Tarek Maassarani, one of the program’s co-directors, and Bianca Johnson, a facilitator with the program, about the program’s origins, growth, and mission. Consider this a case study in the EJUSA Evangelical Network’s overall hope to center healing and repair over prosecution, prisons, and police.
