Beyond Bars Congregations Dinner & Gathering

Justice Not Jails recently hosted a dinner and gathering for Beyond Bars Congregations. It was a special time of fellowship for re-entry friendly congregations who have identified the issues of racialized mass incarceration as a core social justice concern, and for those who have expressed an interest in becoming such. Congregations shared the important work that their community is engaged in, and they heard the inspiring stories of colleagues who are called to support formerly incarcerated persons. For more information on Beyond Bars Congregations, please contact our Beyond Bars organizer here.
