Minnesota is a leader in many restorative justice practices, but the state continues to struggle with low unemployment rates, low high school graduation rates, and overrepresentation of people of color in the criminal justice system.

In collaboration with restorative justice providers, Quakers and youth, AFSC’s St. Paul program helps educate Minnesotans about institutional and systemic racism and advocate for ways in which we can use our voices for change.
