The Office for Catholic Social Justice Ministry of the Archdiocese of Hartford will sponsor this workshop on the need for criminal justice reform on Wednesday October 15, 7:00 pm at St. Peter Claver Church, 47 Pleasant St., West Hartford.
The workshop will feature members of Malta Justice Initiative who will provide insights from their new book, "The Justice Imperative: How Hyper-Incarceration Has Hijacked the American Dream." The discussion will explore the current situation and what opportunities exist for us to respond, as Catholics and as informed citizens. Advance registration is requested. Use the form here or call/email OCSJM: (203) 777-7279 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Malta Justice Initiative is a sponsored work of the Order of Malta.
