Restore Oakland — A Center for Restorative Justice and Restorative Economics

Client: Restore Oakland LLC
Status: In Construction

Located in east Oakland, Restore will be the first center for restorative justice and restorative economics in the country. Restaurant Opportunities Centers United will have their first Oakland restaurant on the ground floor where they will train and incubate low-income communities of color to get front-of-house jobs and start their own food enterprise. In addition, Restore will serve as a hub for the Ella Baker Center’s initiatives to end mass incarceration and provide a local space to “break bread” over food through a restorative justice approach to addressing crime, in which victims feel heard and supported, conflicts are resolved, and communities are strengthened.
