RJIOK’s Five Areas of Focus

Our five areas of focus equip Oklahomans to live restoratively by aligning their values, behaviors, and systems through healing, training, and circles.

Training Restorative Leaders

We train restorative leaders to transform unjust systems and cultures in Oklahoma by first transforming themselves.

Healing & Transforming Communities

We equip restorative leaders to heal and transform communities through the use of restorative circles.

Supporting Restorative Educators

We support restorative educators to create learning environments that pivot away from a culture of punishment.

Engaging Organizations & Workplaces

We engage workplaces and organizations with restorative justice practices.

Advocating for Systemic Change

We are guided by our vision of a better Oklahoma as we advocate for systemic and structural change.
