Am I My Sisters' and Brothers' Keeper?

Quaker Response to Mass Incarceration

The adult program for 2014 SCYM sessions has been planned to help individuals and meetings share our experiences and explore such probing questions as:

  • How well do I understand the incarceration policies that prevail in my community today?
  • What is the depth of my concern for my incarcerated sisters and brothers?
  • What am I doing with regard to my concern for those incarcerated?
  • Am I engaged in the most meaningful actions? What more can I do?
