Projects and programs
Because we believe that social change requires something beyond supporting many individuals in going through personal transformation, we are also taking on a variety of projects that are designed to create transformation in other ways:
Safer Communities Project
This project started in 2002 with teaching classes to people incarcerated at San Quentin, and has extended to XXX. You can read about the work being done by our Safer Communities team here.
This project started in 2001 when four of us began a commitment to grappling with the challenge of having fruitful conversations about race, power, and privilege. Over the years the people and the specific programs have changed considerably, while the original commitment remains strong. You can read here about the variety of undertakings that current members of our Diversity Project team are part of.
Minnesota Child Custody Legislation
This project started in late 2012 when Miki Kashtan was approached by people from Minnesota after their governor vetoed a bill on child custody and expressed a strong interest in a collaborative solution. Miki has been working with the group since then. Collaborative legislation has already been passed in May 2014, and a much larger package is now being addressed by the Minnesota legislature.
