Restorative Justice: RSVP

Violence is learned. Violence can be unlearned.
Resolve To Stop Violence.

Resolve to Stop the Violence Project (RSVP)


Overview 


Resolve to Stop the Violence Project, known as RSVP, is an innovative violence prevention program that incorporates offender accountability, victim restoration, and community involvement to reduce recidivism, responsibly return citizens to their communities, and prevent further violence. It was originally developed through the San Francisco Sheriff's Department.


RSVP is directed at violent offenders both during and after their incarceration. Instead of segregating violent offenders while in custody, such offenders are asked each year to take part in a program built on the principles of restorative justice.
