I sat down with Hannah Bowman to talk about the Prison Abolition movement and why Christians should get involved. Its a wide-ranging, informative, and impassioned conversation about the reality of prisons, their fundamental flaws, why reform isn't enough, better alternatives which promote responsibility and relational healing, and how churches might get to work.
Be sure to check out the Christians for the Abolition of Prisons website, https://christiansforabolition.org/ for loads of resources, articles, blogs, and FAQs.
