Rehabilitation from the Inside Out: Faith – Based Initiatives and the Crisis of Incarceration is the Fifth Annual Symposium designed to assist faith congregations to expand their prison ministry using the Healing Communities USA model. The Symposium will open on Friday evening with a worship service and continue through Saturday with panel presentations, workshops and a lunch-time keynote speaker.
This year the Symposium will explore a number of programs and perspectives on rehabilitation and reentry that are taking place within the correctional system and are being carried out by formerly incarcerated citizens now living beyond the prison walls.
What can faith-based communities do to help address the crisis of incarceration and over-incarceration in America?
The Symposium is sponsored by Healing Communities Network, New York Theological Seminary, Riverside Church Prison Ministry, United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, Exodus Transitional Community and others.
