Purpose: The Anderson Ecumenical Institute recognizes that mass incarceration is a critical issue that all congregations face and seeks to identify promising and proven practices to address the issue within the ministry context and beyond. The workshop’s goal is to develop an ecumenical experience that highlights the critical issue of mass incarceration. Strategies that have been deployed by clergy across the country to effectively address the issue will be shared. Model programs identified and lessons learned will be captured and widely disseminated in the Anderson Ecumenical Institute community and AME Church connection.
