The Burlington Community Justice Center (CJC) is looking for new members to serve on our Citizens’ Advisory Committee (CAC). CAC members provide guidance and advice to the CJC director on issues related to community justice and the CJC. Examples include: collaborating with the director to make policy and identify priorities for the CJC; assisting in educating the community and raising awareness about community and restorative justice; advising the director on CJC operations; and reviewing applications for the Circles of Support and Accountability (COSA) program. It is our intention to include members who represent and give voice to the diversity of the Burlington community. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact CJC Director Anneke Hohl ( or 865-7185).
