Prison Industrial Complex

Prison Industrial Complex 101 & 201

During these two workshops, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • examine the roots of the prison industrial complex (PIC), its reach and impact on our lives, as well as our ability to transform it
  • connect Unitarian Universalist (UU) values to the work to divest from prisons and police and invest in building new systems of safety, healing, and accountability
  • begin to build with local/statewide organizations engaged in prisoner solidarity, organizing to end racist police violence, legislative challenges to the system, and restorative justice work
  • learn about the UU Prison Ministry and how your congregation can support our work
