AFSC Support Available for Prison Reform Programs

Merion Friends Meeting will be co-hosting a series of lectures and events regarding prison reform issues in March 2014, and our Adult First Day Discussion Group is reading The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander.

Early on, we received help from Madeline Schaefer of the American Friends Service Committee, who connected us to resources and helped make sure we weren’t re-inventing the wheel. Her blog post, “Catching the fire for healing justice, one Quaker congregation at a time”  outlines the types of assistance their organization can provide.
