Peacemaking circles are a form of restorative justice that is rooted in the belief that everyone in the community is valuable. The circle process provides a space and tools for community building and turns conflicts into opportunities for growth, learning, and relationship building.
Peacemaking is a traditional indigenous tribal approach to problem solving that focuses on healing and restoring relationships between parties in disagreement. All members of the circle work together to reach a resolution through a collective process between the parties. Because people are able to feel heard and gain understanding of one another, relationships can begin to mend and heal. (https://www.washtenaw.org/1168/Peacemaking)
