A Needed Conversation for all Christians!
Talk about criminal justice reform is at a high. Much of this focuses on the costliness of our current system. While economics matter, many Christians wonder, "Where do God and ethics fit in?"
In this roundtable workshop, participants will question the popular practice of justice and explore alternatives that are rooted in Christian theology. Compassion, restoration, and communion will be guiding emphases.
The workshop is also set to engage highly relevant issues, such as:
· Mass incarceration: poverty and race
· "Treating" drug addiction with punishment
· The collateral consequences of conviction
· Kentucky-specific problems and solutions
