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. For more information or to find out how to get involved, contact Michele Braley, Program Manager, at 612-338-6205 x108 or
