Restorative Justice Inching Forward in Arlington

Restorative Justice will work to gain the trust of residents from all neighborhoods.

When Kimiko Lighty hears Arlington residents commiserating on a listserv about how many cars had been vandalized and no one was doing anything about it; or how a woman was harassed by a group of maskless teens who coughed in her face, implying they were spreading COVID, and sped away laughing; then hears how these teens should be punished instead of “going through a restorative justice process,” it suggests to her that what we are doing now isn’t working.
