Prison Ministry

December 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Riverside Church Prison Ministry conducts advocacy and outreach programs on behalf of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people, their families, and their communities. One of the most compelling needs of the grossly underserved population we serve is the need to be heard, which our volunteers from a range of backgrounds address through advocating on their behalf, working for progressive policies and raising awareness about the issues many people face—issues including reintegration, recidivism, unjust parole denials, mass incarceration, social stigma, and the collateral damage of incarceration on families and communities. Please consider joining the Prison Ministry at their next meet to learn how you can become more involved.
