The following is being distributed at the request of the Human Rights Commission of Newfoundland and Labrador:

Community Justice Connect, a conflict assistance clinic, is launching in Newfoundland and Labrador. The program provides a variety of conflict resolution services to residents, regardless of immigration status, who identify as Indigenous, racialized or a religious minority. The service is free, voluntary and confidential.

Community Justice Connect is a place where people can find help to address concerns, conflicts and racism – direct, indirect or systemic. Trained community facilitators will help people identify ways to address the conflict. Community Justice Connect is committed to providing an authentic service that is accessible, value-based and creative, to Indigenous, racialized, and religious minority communities in the province.

Using the principles of restorative justice, anti-racism and anti-oppression, Community Justice Connect can also help organizations (schools, government, workplaces, healthcare, etc.) improve relationships with Indigenous, racialized, and religious minority communities by working with the organization to design a conflict resolution process. Community Justice Connect will also identify systemic issues affecting communities through trends in cases. We’ll help design processes to engage needed individuals, organizations, community and/or government in creating systemic change.

Community Justice Connect operates in partnership with the Human Rights Commission and Relationships First RJ-NL and is funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage.
