FAITH COMMUNITIES WORKING TOWARDS ENDING MASS INCARCERATION

The U.S., home to just five percent of the world population, holds 25% of the world’s prison population. There are 2.3 million people in the nation’s prisons and jails—a 500% increase in the past 40 years. The land of the free is the incarceration capital of the world.

CONVENING PEOPLE TO MAKE A CHANGE

 

Auburn Seminary, Ebenezer Baptist Church, The Temple, and other interfaith partners are collaborating on a national initiative to catalyze a faith-rooted response to mass incarceration. The initiative leverages the spiritual power, people power, and other resources in faith communities toward ongoing efforts on ending mass incarceration in America, and will convene a national conference on June 17-19, 2019 in Atlanta.
