The Alliance for Unitive Justice is a Virginia-based nonprofit that provides restorative justice services. Our focus is to offer support to members of our communities who are facing conflict. We do this in a variety of ways: training, education, outreach, organizational partnerships, and facilitation of restorative circles.

Circles based on unitive justice principles provide a safe space for people to come together, hear each other, achieve mutual understanding, and discern together how to transform conflict into a mutually beneficial resolution. We promote a restorative process that is voluntary, non-hierarchical, and (in ideal circumstances) that exists outside of traditional disciplinary and retributive measures.

Our program is open to any interested participant, and our organization includes people who are diverse in culture and practice. All of our members are welcome to engage in organizational growth, management, and development.

Our organization is a member of the National Association of Community and Restorative Justice.
