AFSC invites Quaker congregations everywhere to join in the effort to help transform the U.S. criminal justice system from one focused on crime and punishment to one focused on moving from harm to healing.  Quaker meetings and churches are encouraged to learn more about issues of mass incarceration, engage their local communities in the issue, establish relationships with those directly affected, and advocate for just policy.
