Justice That Restores: Christians and Criminal Justice Reform
Louis Arnold, Jeremiah Mosteller, Eugene Schneeberg, Katie Thompson
The United States incarcerates more men and women each year than any other country on Earth. The criminal justice system is often described as broken and is plagued by vast racial disparities and other systemic injustices. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle agree that reform is needed. In this workshop, an expert panel will discuss the factors that have contributed to the current state of the criminal justice system and will explore the role of the government, the Church, and other civil society organizations in seeking innovative reforms that lead to restoration and flourishing.
