Social Justice and Reconciliation Discussion Group

December 19, 2021, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

With the increased news coverage calling for the closure of Rikers Island, our Social Justice and Reconciliation Ministry will begin a journey exploring the current conditions at that detention complex. Taking an historical approach, we’ll compare the concerns raised fifty years ago by inmates at the Attica Correctional Facility before the 1971 prison uprising. We’ll examine the broader implications for better policing and criminal justice reform. Please be advised that the content includes graphic images and accounts of violence. We will gather on December 19th at 12:15 pm for conversation and discussion. To join, or for more information, please email Rev. Leandra Lisa Lambert at llambert@gracebrooklyn.org.
