13th: Faith Communities and Criminal Justice Recap

Thank you for attending 13th: The Role of Faith Communities in Criminal Justice Reform at Gethsemane United Methodist Church. With your help, we can mobilize our communities to transform the criminal justice system in America and abroad. We have a few quick reminders to follow-up from Saturday's event.

  1. If you have time, please take a 5 minutes to complete our post-event survey, to help us improve future community discussions and to determine what our next collaborative action steps should be. (Click here to complete the Post-Event Survey).
  2. To help all continue to move forward with this key justice work, we developed a list of resources that you, your congregation, or community group can use to continue the conversation and put feet to our faith. (Download the Faith Communities in Criminal Justice Reform Resource Guide).
  3. Stay connected with Gethsemane! Photographs from the Screenings and Discussion can be found on Gethsemane's Facebook page (Click here to view the album).
  4. Finally, we would like to thank our panelists again for sharing their time and experiences with our community.
