EBC working to tackle the Criminal Justice System

EBC working to tackle the Criminal Justice System

Monday, February 10, 2020
EBC


More than 100 East Brooklyn Congregations leaders packed the basement of Mt. Lebanon church to discuss the problems with the criminal justice system, especially for formerly incarcerated individuals. We heard testimonials about the difficulty finding affordable housing and living-wage work; and lack of access to mental health care services; legal representation; and how individuals leave prison with no state identification making the aforementioned problems especially difficult.  Outreach continues, as the leaders of EBC work to find more representation from individuals who have served time in jail or prison.
