This discussion makes a case for the importance of faith-based organizations’ involvement in community justice. Community resistance is fueled by myths about
offenders, a focus on public safety, and feelings of danger. A starting point for an educational process should be with faith-based organizations, which are a nexus for most communities. The discussion will present information on their involvement with faith-based initiatives, or community justice initiatives.
Wednesdays, Mar. 1, 8, and 15, 12-1:15 p.m., $25/3 sessions
