Contents: Founded in California in 2001, the Justice and Reconciliation Project (JRP) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring the lives of those harmed by crime by promoting forgiveness and reconciliation between crime victims and offenders, and by supporting restorative justice policies in the legal system. The Project’s “Activities” section details the organization’s projects and campaigns, such as the “Victims' Voices Project,” “In-Prison Projects,” “Violence Prevention,” “Clergy Sexual Abuse Cases,” and “Rwanda 1994 Genocide.” The organization also offers an online magazine, JRP Online Magazine, available in HTML. Visitors to the site can also read about the organization’s media buzz in the “Media Coverage” section. The site is searchable.
