A Religious Response To The Prison Crisis
Grassroots Leadership has joined with allies at the state, local, national and international level to call for an end to all incarceration for profit. In 2005, we launched Keeping Faith: A Religious Response to the Prison Crisis. Sign our petition calling upon people of faith to state their opposition to prison privatization in Florida.
- Help develop an expanded role for the faith community nationally and internationally around prison and criminal justice issues, so that passionate faith-based voices are heard loudly and clearly in opposition to the injustice present in our current systems.
- Organize and educate within the faith community so that people and communities of faith become energized and activated through their participation in the campaign to abolish for-profit private prisons.
- Deepen and broaden the critique of for-profit private prisons from multiple faith perspectives, so that our work is spiritually and theologically rooted and sustained.
