The United States has 5 percent of the world’s population but 25 percent of the world’s incarcerated.
During Lent, Artisan Church is coordinating a multi-church study of Rethinking Incarceration: Advocating for Justice That Restores, by Dominique DuBois Gilliard. The book explores Christianity's role in the expansion of mass incarceration. And it points to ways Christians can help heal that broken system.
This is a priceless opportunity for Christians from several local congregations to learn and explore how we might take action together to restore justice in our community and world.
