Van Jones meets Joshua Johnson, who struggles with PTSD and an injury after being shot by a friend who left him to die. The Redemption Project is an American television series hosted by Van Jones that goes to the forefront of the criminal justice system and the restorative process. Restorative justice seeks to heal the harm caused by crime. Instead of focusing on retribution, it focuses on rehabilitation. At its core, it is a process that offers both victims and those who caused harm an opportunity to seek answers and accountability to begin to repair the damage caused by crime.
