Come join us for a discussion with Dominique DuBois Gilliard addressing his new book "Rethinking Incarceration: Advocating for Justice that Restores." Our resident scholar Christopher will be conducting an interview with Dominique that will also be screened via Facebook Live. Bring your questions and prepare to engage with an issue facing the American Church here and now.

About the book:
The United States has more people locked up in jails, prisons, and detention centers than any other country in the history of the world. Mass incarceration has become a lucrative industry, and the criminal justice system is plagued with bias and unjust practices. And the church has unwittingly contributed to the problem.

Dominique Gilliard explores the history and foundation of mass incarceration, examining Christianity’s role in its evolution and expansion. He then shows how Christians can pursue justice that restores and reconciles, offering creative solutions and highlighting innovative interventions.

The church has the power to help transform our criminal justice system. Discover how you can participate in the restorative justice needed to bring authentic rehabilitation, lasting transformation, and healthy reintegration to this broken system.
