VISION & MISSION
Western Justice Center (WJC) envisions a world in which people value empathy, embrace inclusivity and resolve conflict without the use of violence. We offer this vision as a salve to the wounds of systemic oppression that underlie so much of the conflict within and between communities in our country. We believe that the path to this future runs through our schools because youth have the capacity to heal, unite and transform their communities if they have the tools to navigate differences and address injustice.
WJC’s mission is to empower young people to become the conflict mediators and community builders of the future by growing sustainable CRE capacity among students, educators, schools and community partners. Working with a wide range of partners, WJC fosters a community where creative minds can partner and invest in, test, evaluate and replicate new approaches to violence prevention, conflict resolution and intergroup relations.
WJC was founded in 1987 by a group of visionary judges and lawyers led by the Honorable Dorothy W. Nelson, judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, to meet a need, particularly in the Western United States, for quality research into dispute resolution methods and strategies for improving the administration of justice. WJC has led communal efforts to prevent violence, resolve conflict and improve intergroup relations including through training, consultation, community engagement and research around community-police relations, early childhood education, gang violence, hate crimes, implicit bias and bullying.
