Ending Mass Incarceration: The Ongoing Call to Faith Communities

Pastor Lilian Amaya, Lissette Castillo Vizcarra, Janis Rosheuvel

The crisis of incarceration this nation now faces demands people of faith act with swift and fierce moral authority to transform, not just reform, an irreparably broken system. It demands that all of us—clergy, seminarians, teachers, and people in pews, mosques and temples— provoke a revolution of values that strikes at the heart of mass incarceration. Without exception, we believers are required to realize a just world. This is our call, and we are falling short when it comes to how we treat those in jails, prisons and detention centers.
