Join us online to learn about the grassroots peacebuilding trauma healing, resilience, restorative justice, and racial healing and equity work of the Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute with Coming to the Table racial healing talking circles. MN Peacebuilding’s mission is to instigate, train, and support racially, sexually, culturally, ethnically, religiously, and economically diverse individuals and organizations to become trauma healing-informed, resilience-oriented, and restorative justice- focused, empowering communities in Minnesota, the USA, and around the world. We prepare individuals and organizations for truth-telling and repairing harm for healed, just, equitable relationships toward the possibility of reconciliation setting the stage for positive structural nonviolent change. Our vision is making Minnesota the peacebuilding
power state for all, and we welcome everyone from everywhere to join us to learn how to build just, racially equitable peace within their spheres of influence.
