The Project

Restorative Justice is an alternative tool with which to build a new system of accountability and healing for young women of color and their communities. Alicia diverted young women out of the juvenile justice system and implemented a gender-specific Restorative Justice program in Los Angeles as an alternative to the current system. Also, Alicia educated the legal community about Restorative Justice and advocated for its widespread adoption throughout the juvenile justice system.

I am committed to social justice in order to address inequality by empowering communities to create alternative systems that reflect their values and desires.
