In the spirit of being led by the most affected, we gather to hear the stories of people of faith with deep life experience resisting the gross injustices of mass incarceration. Please join us as we listen to and learn from three champions of social justice who have accompanied countless incarcerated and returning citizens in the struggle to maintain their dignity as valued members of the beloved community. Topics to be discussed include: the school-to-prison pipeline, systemic barriers to holistic re-entry, and authentic justice as restorative justice.
