Community Justice Connect Launches
The Human Rights Commission of Newfoundland and Labrador has launched a conflict assistance clinic. It will provide conflict resolution services to residents, regardless of immigration status, who identify as Indigenous, racialized or a religious minority.
The service is free, voluntary and confidential.
Named "Community Justice Connect", the program is a place where people can find help to address concerns, conflicts and racism – direct, indirect or systemic.
Trained community facilitators will help people identify ways to address the conflict.
Using the principles of restorative justice, anti-racism and anti-oppression, Community Justice Connect can also help organizations improve relationships with Indigenous, racialized, and religious minority communities by working with the organization to design a conflict resolution process.
