Our Story

A phone call answered.

One person on the line tells us their story — a story that represents the experiences of tens of thousands of people living in Minnesota and throughout the Midwest each year. People whose self-determination and dignity are being oppressed.

We answer each call with care, with honor, and with the most resounding belief that these stories can be different. And the bravery to accept nothing less.

In 1967, abortion was illegal in the Midwest, single-parenthood was taboo, and adoption sent women and girls “away.” A small group of doctors, clergy, and community members came together to provide support to the people who were calling upon them for help. Our Justice was founded to be a place where individuals, families, and communities were treated with respect and dignity.

Since that day, we have been listening to each and every person who contacts us, providing the resources and supports each person tells us they need, and working to break down the barriers people and communities face in exercising their human right to have children, not have children, and to raise children in safe and healthy environments.
