Resources for Practitioners

Healing Justice provides presentations, trainings, and technical support to police, prosecutors, victim service providers, judges, and other service providers who work with crime victims, survivors, and their families. In collaboration with the US Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime, we are also creating resources and tools that can be used in the field to better serve crime victims and survivors in cases that involve post-conviction claims of innocence.
