Communities of faith are playing a critical role in efforts to end mass incarceration and address its underlying drivers: poverty, poor education and inadequate housing - as recognized in the remarkable document from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 2012 report, "Rethinking Reentry: A Massachusetts Imperative".

One example: The United Parish of Brookline, which  has shared its "Statement in Opposition to Mass Incarceration" unanimously approved at the church's annual meeting in June.  United Parish welcomes comments and opportunities to connect with other congregations and communities going forward.  Read the document here
