American Friends Service Committee: Healing Justice
AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice.
At this San Francisco office of AFSC we do prison-related work. We can try to provide both pastoral and advocacy learning opportunities. We work in a number of Bay Area counties doing restorative justice circles and trying to lift up restorative models to replace the existing punishment (violent) system. We also do community organizing, including within faith communities - attempting to impact state policies administratively and legislatively.
