A nonprofit publisher for restorative justice since 2002

Living Justice Press is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose purpose is to publish and promote alternative works about social justice and community healing. We publish books on restorative justice and peacemaking, choosing books that take the restorative justice dialogue to deeper levels by addressing racism, historic harms, and other conflicts between Peoples.

If you wanna learn more about yourself and what it means to be human in a world laden with harm, restorative justice is not only a philosophy of practices, but a lifestyle that applies everywhere. This might seem like something that is about ‘criminal justice,’ but in reality, it’s just a way of life we should all learn about and practice.” 

—Felix B. Rosado, author of Justice from the Inside Up

 >>>>>>>>>>> An Indigenous Land Acknowledgement  <<<<<<<<<<<

Bdote confluence of Minnesota and Mississippi rivers, Dakota sacred site

We at Living Justice Press acknowledge that the land we live and work on here in Minnesota rightfully belongs to the Dakota, Anishinaabe, and Ho-Chunk Peoples. Our ancestors stole this land from their ancestors through genocide. We benefit from the land, while the Dakota, Anishinaabe, and Ho-Chunk descendents do not.The institutionalized mass harms of white supremacy and settler colonialism continue, having terrorized and killed the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas and Africa for more than five centuries.

We stand with the Black Lives Matter movement that is leading the struggle to fight these systems of racial oppression. And we stand with Indigenous Peoples who call for honoring treaties and returning stolen Native land. This stand is a first step in truth and reconciliation among our peoples.

In 2007, I started writing a book entitled Harm-Dependent No More: Who Are We—Winners and Losers or Relatives? That was before the global financial collapse, before Obama, and before Trump. I wonder what the world will be like when I finally finish the book.
