NACRJ is a memberships association composed of practitioners, educators, trainers, academics and others interested in promoting a safe, just, equitable and sustainable society through uses of community and restorative justice practices. The NACRJ was established in June 2013 after conducting four bi-annual conferences. In June 2019 the 7th NACRJ Conference in Denver, CO was attended by 1,627 people of which roughly 70% were educators. Our annual membership is generally in the 600-700 range at the end each membership year. We are currently planning the 8th NACRJ Conference for 2022 in Chicago, IL after being postponed a year due to the COVID pandemic. We are planning for 1,200 to 1,400 attendees but with pent up demand attendance could be higher.
