Faith communities across the nation are being asked to sign a letter to the Obama Administration encouraging criminal justice reform.
This is not a radical letter. But this is a valuable opportunity for you to encourage the social concerns committee of your faith congregation to begin a discussion of these issues. Naturally you can use this discussion to educate your faith community about the drug policy and criminal justice issues that the letter does not address -- from ending drug prohibition as the only way that the violence can be substantially reduced or ending capital punishment.
