On Feb. 26, 2016, the Commission on Gang Prevention and Intervention, along with many other partners, sponsored and actively participated in the 2016 Restorative Justice & Restorative Practices Summit at the San Diego Community Concourse.

The purpose of this summit was to raise awareness about Restorative Justice and Restorative practices and the benefits to the community including victims, offenders, and society.
