Seward Longfellow Restorative Justice is hosting a fundraiser with a performance by Maria Isa & the Drums at Hook and Ladder (3010 Minnehaha Ave S., Minneapolis, MN 55406) on Thursday, May 4th. This concert will launch the Hook and Ladder’s annual, award-winning Under the Canopy series.
This outdoor concert is 21+ and tickets are $25 in advance or $35 at the door. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit SLRJ. There will be a food truck on site for the duration of the show and free ice cream provided by Minnehaha Scoop.
Seward Longfellow Restorative Justice was founded by neighborhood residents in 2004 to work with youth cited for breaking the law in order to help them learn from their mistakes and make amends. Over the years SLRJ has contributed to many important legal reforms to transform how mistakes by youth are treated, that is, to move away from a punishment model to one that treats “youthful behavior” as opportunities for learning and making amends.
Maria Isa is a Boricua singer, songwriter, actress, rapper, activist, youth worker, international recording artist, who was born in Minnesota and raised on St. Paul’s West Side barrio. She is also the MN State Rep for District 65B!
