$50 | Criminal Justice Initiative

In 2020, Love Mercy Do Justice began to address the question, what would it look like for the Evangelical Covenant Church to intentionally engage in reentry efforts? We came up with a plan to gather a small cohort of pastors to be trained and partnered with incarcerated students within the School of Restorative Arts (SRA) program. When the pandemic shut everything down, in-person interaction with inside students also came to a halt. We pivoted, and through this pivot we had an opportunity to broaden our focus.

After a survey of churches and input from the SRA students, we learned that many churches hadn’t yet done the foundational work of understanding why engaging communities impacted by mass incarceration is so important. We decided to start with the “why” by creating our newly released Criminal Justice and the Church curriculum.

This free, online course provides congregations across the denomination the opportunity to listen to and learn from voices directly impacted by mass incarceration.

A gift of $50 supports the community transformation that happens as a result of centering those who are most directly impacted by mass incarceration.
