In chapter nine we conclude the book with an exploration of compassionate policy reforms and emancipatory practices within the rising tide of juvenile justice reform nationally and in Hawai‘i. We begin with a story of a family loss to highlight the failures of the existing justice system to bring resolution and restore peace in the face of violence. We press for better alternatives and describe a practice of healing and restoration traditional to Native Hawaiians called Ho‘oponopono in work among youth and families.
