Peace - $25,000 Grantee

Mid-South Peace and Justice Center (MSPJC) mobilizes communities to realize social justice through nonviolent action. The Community Foundation grant will support MSPJC’s Juvenile Justice Project to further integrate youth programming into its work. Components of the community-based, restorative justice project include creating meaningful volunteer opportunities for young people court-ordered to complete service hours and providing educational trainings around nonviolent communication and nonviolent direct action.
