A little about Seward Longfellow Restorative Justice Partnership:
Last fall, SLRJP celebrated its 10th anniversary. We work primarily with youth who have broken the law to help them explore the impact of their actions and to develop a plan to repair the harm caused. We receive referrals from the Minneapolis Police Department and Hennepin County Attorney’s Office . SLRJP was created by residents of Seward and Longfellow and it’s the volunteer and financial support of the community that continues to sustain us.
