What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Alternatives to Violence (AVP)

Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) - AVP is a national and international volunteer-run program that conducts workshops in resolution of conflict through nonviolence.  AVP is in demand in prisons and communities across the US and has been successful in countries plagued with violence.  AVP is so successful that the Government of Rwanda has made it the cornerstone of its post-genocide reconciliation program.  Currently, almost 2000 volunteers serve at AVP facilitators in the US, with nearly 100 working in Minnesota prisons, jails and communities.

Population(s) Served

People Camp is a week long experience of cooperation, community living, peacemaking, and the exploration of ideas and issues.  This is a summer camp experience for the whole family and for anyone who enjoys warm, supportive community, challenging workshops and lots of recreation in a camp setting.

Population(s) Served

We envision a policing model characterized by transparency, trust, equity and compassion. This model rests on the twin pillars of genuine partnership between community and police and respect for the inherent dignity of every member of the community.
