Representatives from faith-based, governmental and advocacy groups will engage in theological reflection and informative presentations concerning ministries to the incarcerated, criminal justice reform, and the re-entry of former inmates into society. We seek to encourage and to inform those working to proclaim hope in the midst of the suffering and injustice embedded within our current systems of mass incarceration.

Speakers include advocates, researchers, authors, clergy, attorneys, government officials, and service providers to inmates and their families, including:

The Rev. Charles Allen Wynder, Jr., Missioner for Social Justice and Advocacy Engagement for The Episcopal Church
Dr. Jennifer M. McBride, Assistant Professor of Theology and Ethics at McCormick Theological Seminary
