Penal Reform Committee

Primary tabs


The Quaker Penal Reform Committee is active in promoting a compassionate, rehabilitative justice system in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The group organises an annual weekend Penal Reform Seminar at the Whanganui Quaker Settlement, discussing reconciliation, justice and restitution in New Zealand society. Quakers, non-governmental agencies, Corrections staff and others come together to share perspectives, consider attitudes towards crime and punishment, and encourage reform.
