Set the Captives Free: A Christian call to end mass incarceration
The United States calls itself the land of liberty yet we have more people incarcerated than any other nation. Christ came to set captives free yet many Christians do not see ending mass incarceration as an urgent discipleship priority. This workshop will explore how Christians can bring change to the prison system by standing in solidarity with our incarcerated brothers and sisters and advocating for policies that set people free!
