American Friends Service Committee: Healing Justice

Criminal Justice Advocacy

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.

10-15 hours per week in an advocacy setting, working on policies related to the overuse of incarceration, solitary confinement, and modeling healing justice techniques. We work with a variety of coalitions, addressing this issue, do research to inform congregations and the public about the issues, organize events and work for change. Students will work with the mentor to design a project that meets their learning goals as well as our organizational goals. 

Stipend: $11/hr
