The Healing Justice Program is seeks to change our system of justice from a paradigm of retribution to one of healing and transformative justice that seeks to restore wholeness to individuals and communities.
This new system is informed by Quaker philosophy, by models developed in Indigenous communities and other Communities of Color, and by prisoners and formerly incarcerated individuals and their families.
AFSC is active with Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty and is working for a moratorium on executions in Missouri.
