Thank you As a society we need to do better. We cannot endlessly incarcerate people and call ourselves a fair and better society. As of now, the US has around 2.3 million people locked up in jails, prisons, detention centers and correctional facilities.

Prison ministry also means accompanying the people and staff working at jails and prisons. They also have dreams, families & loved ones that care for them. We call strongly for better working conditions and health care support to protect them and their families from the pandemic.

We call on all local, state, and national leaders to act more decisively and bravely in handling COVID-19 cases in jails and prisons across the US. Correctional health is public health.

Yep, Pope Francis said that regarding the need to give the incarcerated a second chance. We need to support returning citizens for them to succeed. From mentoring, employment, rehabilitation, counseling, education, to housing. Do you know of any organization that can help them?

Because our legal system disproportionately harms Black & Latinx people, reinstating access to Pell Grants for all eligible incarcerated students must be a part of the conversation to correct an unjust system filled with racial inequities.

“Nearly one out of every 100 people in this country are in a U.S. prison or jail.” Why? “Because in the United States we have a punitive approach to justice as opposed to a restorative approach, When someone harms us, we want retaliation.”

We have to stop dehumanizing people who are incarcerated. Yes, they made mistakes but all have of us have inherent value as human beings.
