“Village is a place where you can find peace, unity, strength, inspiration and most importantly a natural and beautiful life”
― Minahil urfan
“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world…would do this, it would change the earth.” ― William Faulkner
I would like to personally thank the core group of leaders and organizers I have the privilege to brainstorm and serve in the ranks with performing restorative justice. I appreciate seeing the passion of others who aren’t afraid to raise their voices against injustice anywhere. Alfredo is passionate about school and Immigration, Terrance is passionate about the formerly Incarcerated, Greg is passionate about the needs of youth and education with Alfredo and Ebony is very familiar with women’s issues and the formerly incarcerated, I find my identity within the 360 degrees of passion they exude and infuse that with my ministry of reconciliation in Jesus Christ.
“Those who are concerned about the cost of incarceration … are interested in human life behind the walls as to allow us to become the community for them. We are very concerned about the preparation of human being affected by incarceration and substance abuse. We are your reentry community.
“We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” ― Elie Wiesel
