On January 21, 2013, AFSC's Friend of a Friend program led a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day community tribunal at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Govans, Baltimore.

Wahid's story

As with many participants, self growth was not the first thing on Wahid’s mind when he decided to participate in Friend of a Friend. He was an 18-year-old kid who, after being picked off the streets of Baltimore at the age of 16, was interested in little more than qualifying for parole. However, he quickly discovered that AFSC’s conflict resolution program had more to offer than a certificate of completion.
