Kayla Craig, Lindsy Wallace, Shannon Evans
We're grateful to have Dominique Gilliard, author of “Rethinking Incarceration: Advocating for Justice That Restores,” join us on the podcast. In addition to being an author and an ordained minister, Dominique is the director of racial righteousness and reconciliation for the Love Mercy Do Justice (LMDJ) initiative of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). Lindsy Wallace leads the conversation.
In this episode, we:
Define mass incarceration and discuss its foundation and history in America;
Talk about how mass incarceration plays out in our communities and in society;
Share how the Gospel should inform our response; and
Provide actions that all of us can take to become advocates for change.
Join us as we discuss how Christians can pursue justice that restores and reconciles.
