In four winter programs we learned about how various elements of the criminal justice system in Illinois and the rest of the United States contribute to putting more people in prison and in jail than public safety requires. (See videos of those programs on this homepage.)

This mass incarceration, and the life-long restrictions and control that follow, disproportionally damage the lives of people of color and contribute to a cycle of crime and punishment. We were inspired to think of ways that each of us can get involved.

On April 22nd, we will join with the Interfaith Criminal Justice Task Force to continue the discussion and dig deeper into understanding how we can all contribute to addressing the problems with our criminal justice system.
