Laura Magnani Benefit for AFSC


In September of this year, Laura Magnani will retire from her work for the American Friends Service Committee’s Healing Justice program.

Over the 30 years of her AFSC work on prison reform, including two books, countless articles, numerous art shows and a zillion actions later, Laura has been a participant in extraordinary transformations. The problem of incarceration has become more widely recognized, and reform has started. The movement’s leadership has passed to formerly incarcerated people. Laura has been a tireless advocate, a facilitator, and strategic organizer. She will be missed, but she has mentored many young people who are equipped to continue the struggle. Our hope is to raise $20,000 in Laura’s honor to boost the AFSC’s Healing Justice campaign.
