Natalie DeFreitas

Rethinking the Impact of Traditional Justice

Natalie believes there is a better way to “do” justice. At the age of 18, she volunteered with a literacy organization in Canadian federal prisons, and quickly became convinced of the merits of an emerging trend toward restorative justice practices. Today, she is a consultant and psychological counsellor who works closely with incarcerated populations, schools, governments, non-profit organizations and communities to take a stand against the greatest influencers on crime: poverty, racism, illiteracy, inadequate mental health and social services and lack of community collaboration.

Natalie encourages others to think dynamically about social accountability and believes justice is more than an institutionalized response; it is something we build collaboratively.
