Making Diversion Programs More Culturally Responsive

We have worked with elders in the East African community to develop a culturally responsive mediationapproach to address issues regarding the disproportionate rates of incarceration of youth of color and tointerrupt the school to prison pipeline. Our organization has been involved with local CBOs, faith-basedgroups, and organizers to also bring awareness regarding the struggle that immigrant and refugee youthface in America. Our work utilizes and honors traditional African practices that promote peace andhealing, and elevating young leaders in the community.
