Why Choose PathStone Foundation?

Annually, we provide direct hands-on restorative services to more than 40,000 individuals and families in 9 States and Puerto Rico. We are a well-managed, financially sound, data-driven, community-based delivery system with expertise and experience to work in both urban and rural communities. We are strong advocates and practitioners for racial, economic, and social justice.
This PathStone program, under the leadership of Shane Wiegand, Kesha James and their leadership team, is committed to empowering students, educators and communities with instructional resources about the local history of racism and civil rights using rich primary sources and restorative practices. Donations directly support this critically important educational curriculum as it is introduced and sustained to local schools.
Membership is open to those donors who contribute $5,000 or more to the PathStone Foundation. Society members embrace the admonition by Theodore Parker, 19th century abolitionist and Unitarian minister who said, “The Arc of the Moral Universe Is Long but It Bends toward Justice.”
This annual interactive dialogue introduces renowned thought leaders with unique expertise, experience and passion to challenge us to address the deeply rooted racism that has existed and continues to perpetuate racial, economic and social disparities throughout our community.
