Not at the Dinner Table: A Faith Perspective on Mass Incarceration (Cleveland)
March 21 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Presenter: Dominique GilliardFree
Since 1970, the prison population has grown by 700%, giving the US the largest prison population in the world. And while women are the fastest growing prison demographic, people of color have been up to 10 times more likely to be in jail or prison than their white counterparts for the last 40 years. What role has Christianity played in the evolution and expansion of this prison-industrial complex? How can we help bring healing and restoration? Join us as author Dominique Gilliard, along with individuals on both sides of the justice system, discuss creative solutions to mass incarceration that the church can participate in. Who cares? We do.
