50 Years of Failure: Reimagining Public Safety

The Festival Center 1640 Columbia Road NW, Washington

Through policies, legislation, and social attitudes based in racism, the United States has maintained 50 years of mass incarceration, which has brought about devastation to individuals, families, and entire communities, especially communities of color. Yet, even in the midst of institutionalized societally sanctioned oppression, glimpses can be seen of a justice system that protects the rights of individuals where victims of crime find healing and where those accused of committing harm find accountability and restoration. On Thursday, September 14 from 7-8:30 pm, you are invited to join experts, pastors, theologians, and those directly impacted by injustice to reimagine public safety that authentically includes all people. Our hope is that together the retributive nature of mass incarceration can be transformed into a justice system that heals and restores.
