Purpose: The Community Justice Committee serves Kwanlin Dun adults and youths living in the City of Whitehorse. It operates a pre- and post-charge diversion program with an emphasis on reintegration and prevention programs. The Justice Committee is assisted by program staff and a victim support worker. The Kwanlin Dun Community Social Justice Program has four goals. First, to promote awareness and understanding of behaviours and actions that can cause and prevent crime. Secondly, to assist the community in resolving its own disputes. Thirdly, to empower the community to assume greater responsibility for its justice issues. Fourthly, to support the community in its healing after it has been harmed. Efforts are being made to provide information to community members about the program through meetings. Comprehensive training activities have taken place and links have been established with community, regional and national level agencies.
