“Somewhere along the line, we blinked.
Somewhere along the line, we got caught up in the immediacy of our successes,
and did not keep our eye on the long-term goal. And in that space the corruptors stepped in
and grabbed at us, keeping us from what we were trying to achieve.
Now we find ourselves here today in the midst of one of the greatest crises
of my lifetime. I don’t know of any time more critical than this very moment is.”

On January 1, 2015, Deuteronomy 8:3 Café Books
and Music celebrated its Thirteenth  
Anniversary.  Eleven years ago, D8:3 began
addressing critical social, economic and legal
justice issues through its Restorative Justice
Initiative.  It is out of the Initiative that The
National Institute evolved. The Institute organized
as an autonomous non-profit corporation in
March of 2011, and was chartered by the State of
Ohio on May 2, 2011.  

In celebration of Deuteronomy's
this January, our Founder's
Sixty-Third Birthday this February, and The
National Institutes'
Fourth Anniversary this
May, we ask that you consider a contribution to
Friends Campaign in a gift of  $4, $13, $63
or any amount of your comfort
, so that we
can continue to move forward in our work toward
restoring social, economic and legal justice.

A Note From A Loyal Friend!
I've known Mittie Imani and
cherished her friendship for 24
years. I've worked along side
her and watched her create
miraculous programs from
meager resources. When she's
this passionate about
something, it DOES get done.

Thanks To All Of Our Friends!
reality of the dream of the NIRJ and ensuring it
reaches its goals of restoring social, economic and
legal justice. It takes funding.  Consistent,
committed funding at all levels: individual,
organizational, corporate, grants, and gifts – at the
local, regional and national level.

What I can do, right now, is give as an individual
who believes in what the NIRJ is doing and is going
to do to shine the light on injustice. This
organization is critically important. So many
individuals, families, neighborhoods, and
businesses are counting on us to help the NIRJ
stand up for them. I've signed on as a $60 monthly
contributor in the Friends Campaign, so the NIRJ
will know it has one more piece in the foundation it
needs to build for the long run.

I encourage you to join me in making a monthly
contribution at whatever level you can. It all helps
tremendously. Please do it today.
