Imagine a world without prisons, lawyers, or courtrooms - where justice is done.What if there were no prisons? Alternative approaches to dealing with crime are underway around the world to explore how victims, offenders, and communities can heal rifts and repair damage. It's often called restorative justice. It's a way to think about the deeper reasons behind crimes, and suggests that by building more caring communities, it's possible to change our societies - and ourselves.Making It Right relates true stories of young people who are working in innovative ways to further peaceful resolution of conflict and to heal past wounds. The book begins with individual injustices, such as bullying, and works up to collective ones, like wars. Each chapter begins with a dramatic fictional account, making the topic engaging and relevant for kids.Restorative justice isn't going to change the world overnight, nor will it end all crime or prevent all wars. But it's a powerful way to get teens thinking about how they can participate in building a more peaceful society.
