At the time of writing this article, Lund was an inmate in Minnesota. Convicted of a violent crime, she describes her involvement with various restorative justice programs. These include meaningful work both inside and outside of a prison setting, a Speakers Bureau (for inmates to address young people in the community to warn them about the effects of being an offender), and volunteer projects in a local school. She conveys the positive changes in her due to participation in these programs.
